We held our seventh annual Morningstar ETF Conference from Sept. 7–9 in Chicago. The three-day event brought together over 700 advisors, strategists, due-diligence analysts, exchange-traded-fund providers, and a host of other industry participants. As is the case with all Morningstar conferences, this is not a pay-to-play affair chock- a-block with product pitches. Our analysts craft each year’s agenda. We set out to put together a solid lineup of industry luminaries to spur good conversation about important issues facing investors, as well as to give them practical ideas about how to put ETFs to work in practice. I think this year’s conference was our best yet, and I’d like to share with you my top four takeaways from the event.
