Bringing European growth opportunities to the US


Meet a panel of European ETF experts at a city near you and find out how you can enter the growing European ETF market.


Europe has a population over twice that of the USA and a similar wealth demographic. Yet, currently Europe only has $1.5 trillion in ETF assets compared to ~7 trillion dollars in the US. Clearly, Europe has untapped growth potential.​​​​​​

According to EY, the European ETF market is expected to grow to more than $3 trillion in AUM by 2030, a prediction of nearly 100% increase over the next seven years. The main areas of focus are likely to be:

  • Making ESG progress
  • Increasing the adoption rate of online channels as a distribution method
  • Development of the active ETF space


To learn about winning strategies on how to successfully enter the European ETF market, join our panel of European ETF experts at one of the upcoming events.


The following topics will be covered:

  • European ETF landscape: developments in ESG, MIFID, CSDR
  • Regulatory considerations: UCITS regime and considerations for ETPs on alternative asset classes such as cryptocurrencies
  • Administration: role of custodian and administrator
  • Exchange: ETF listing & trading
  • Continued innovation: Active ETFs and Defined Outcome: the growth in Europe
  • Customized index solutions for ETFs
