Passive investing and exchange-traded funds (most of which are passive investments) have grown exponentially over the past several years. Globally, ETFs increased by more than a trillion dollars in 2017 alone. This rapid growth has fundamentally changed market drivers and behavior. Our panel of ETF and market structure experts will explain today’s market realities, how these popular investments are dramatically reshaping market behavior -- and how they could affect markets in a recession. Learn more about the factors that drive the wide popularity of ETFs and equities melt-ups, how movements in the market are less tied to fundamentals than ever, how this affects your company's stock and therefore, matters to your company and management team.

Speakers: Ben Johnson, CFA, Director, Global ETF Research, Morningstar; Tim Quast, President, Modern IR
