Truss Edge has supported the publication of a new white paper from Blackwater Search and Advisory on the different characters of the European and US ETF industries. This is something that is frequently remarked upon, and the white paper sheds some useful light on the topic.
The white paper can be downloaded here.
The white paper breaks down into the following areas:
- Why European ETF market is fragmented
- The differing taxation aspect for investors
- Impact of the differing retail distribution landscape
- Importance of 401k plans for US market evolution
The white paper provides an excellent summary for ETF managers and prospective ETF managers who wish to consider their transatlantic distribution options. Effective distribution of ETF is a critical part of a successful launch and should not be underestimated when considering an ETF strategy.
