Morningstar, 09/18/2014

Since our first ETF Conference in 2010, the exchange-traded fund industry has continued to grow and evolve. ETFs are attracting an ever-larger share of assets as investors seek low-cost, passive investments, and a slew of new products has expanded the space from plain-vanilla equity index funds into more exotic products. But how can investors navigate this increasingly complex landscape to build better portfolios and position themselves in today's market?

This year's conference, Sept. 17-19 in Chicago, will shed some light on ETF investors' best practices today, including panel discussions about the rise of strategic-beta funds, how to best invest in fixed income using ETFs, where it may pay to hire an active manager, and how to tap emerging markets.

Keynote speakers will include Nobel laureate Eugene Fama and BlackRock's Russ Koesterich.

For those who can't attend this year's event, Morningstar.com will offer on-the-spot coverage and commentary, including video interviews with the presenters and session recaps.
