Passive Management Gains Popularity amongst Investors in Asia - Industry Heavyweights Launch Asian ETF Investors Summit

SINGAPORE, Apr 18, 2011 - (ACN Newswire) - The Exchange Traded Funds (ETF) market in Asia has been growing steadily over the years. In 2010, there were close to 250 ETFs/ETPs listed in the Asia Pacific region, with assets of over USD70 billion listed on 15 Exchanges.

With the many advantages that ETF offers over actively managed funds in terms of costs, efficiency and flexibility, both retail and institutional investors' appetitie for this product have increased. This is coupled with the fact that research has shown that most fund managers underperformed the benchmark leading to many investors questioning the rationale to pay management fees for underperformance or benchmark returns.

In volatile markets, investors are in search for a broader diversification options to minimise volatility on their portfolio and turning towards commodity based investments and other non equity related options. This is where ETFs with product varieties linking to a wide spectrum of asset classes are an attractive and viable option.

Industry heavyweights like Deutsche Bank, Blackrock, CIMB-Principal Asset Management and Lxyor have teamed up Asia's leading finance conference organiser, The Pinnacle Group International to launch an investors ETF event called The Asian ETF Investors Summit 2011 at the Sheraton Towers Singapore on 28-29 April 2011 to gather institutional investors from the region to invest in this technology.

The event is expected to attract over 250 delegates consisting of mainly investors from the region.
