There are various types of Exchange Traded Funds, or ETFs, available to investors across asset classes that can be used for income and return generation, speculation, price increases, and to hedge or partly offset risk in an investor's portfolio. Furthermore, ETFs now are a prominent fixture in the investor marketplace and capital markets. Over the last several years, significant product innovations and growth in the ETF space have led to its current prominence. There are, however, several important questions that emerge. What are the ETF advantages, disadvantages and trends? Where are the next frontiers? What are the important products today and over the horizon? How should institutional and retail investors think about ETFs with respect to their portfolios?
