The Price War in the ETF Industry
This episode was recorded at the Inside ETFs conference in Hollywood, FL in 2019. We apologize for the background noise from the conference but hope you continue to listen to this great conversation.
Beginning with the launch of SPY over 26 years ago, the ETF industry has dramatically reduced the cost of investing for countless advisors and their clients. I will hear from Sue Thompson of State Street Global Advisors about the competitive pressures in the ETF industry.
She oversees the distribution of the SPDR ETFs, which have over $620 billion in assets. She discussed what State Street is doing to ensure the SPDR product line is priced competitively.
