Overview

Bloomberg Financial Series Visual Guide to ETFs

A comprehensive resource for anyone who wants to understand the fundamentals of ETFs, the Bloomberg Financial Series Visual Guide to ETFs is designed to help you get the most out of ETF opportunities in a simple, highly visual manner.

Starting with an introduction to ETFs, the book looks at where they fit within the world of investment products, how they are structurally differentiated from other products and among themselves, relevant tax considerations, global listings, growth on a global basis, evolution of the product set, and more. Heavily illustrated throughout with charts and other visual aids that highlight the concepts covered, the book brings the information you need on ETFs vividly to life.

Designed to help financial advisors, institutional asset managers, and professional traders, the Bloomberg Financial Series Visual Guide to ETFs gives you a full understanding of ETFs, including: how ETF portfolios work, the short interest of ETFs, trading and liquidity in ETF markets, how they relate to the "Flash Crash" of 2010, how to execute orders, and various trading strategies.

Also looking towards the future, the book provides information on finding ETFs—including fund searches, fund news, measuring and valuing ETFs, evaluating their correlation to the underlying sector or commodity being tracked, and much more. As a result, it serves as a resource not just for understanding ETFs today, but for taking advantage of what's to come.

The Bloomberg Financial Series Visual Guides cover today's most relevant finance and trading topics in a comprehensive, yet easy-to-follow style. The content is presented in the most visual of manners thus bringing to life key concepts for finance professionals and truly lives up to the series name by examining concepts in a highly visual way—all charts are in color and presented in a large format for ease of use. Other strong visual attributes include consistent elements that function as additional learning aids for the reader, such as: Key Points, Definitions, Step-by-Step, Do It Yourself, and Bloomberg Financial Series Visual Guide functionality.

And for e-reader users, the Bloomberg Financial Series Visual Guides are available as enhanced e-books offering special features, like a Test Yourself section where you can test your newly honed knowledge and skills. The enhanced e-book versions also include video tutorials and special pop-up features. They can be purchased wherever e-books are sold.
