      A Fresh Perspective

    1. With the 25th anniversary of the world's first ETF now behiind us, 2016 kicks off with the CDN ETF industry enjoying momentum, with significant further potential for ETFs. In fact, if everything lines-up properly, 2015's record creations could be dwarfed this year. This won't simply be due to the arrival of new entrants, but will also be the result of pending regulatory changes which should translate into a greater impetus for investors and their advisors to consider the significant value proposition presented by ETFs. Couple this with meaningful new participants in the ETF eco-system - ETF Strategists and ROBO Advisors - which are looking to capture a rapidly growing share of investors' wallets, and the future ought to be nothing but bright.

      Or will it?
      • • The implementation of CRM2 is long overdue, but it appears the Canadian Financial industry would rather continue to defer, delay, and obfuscate.

      • • Market Structure – Canada's powerful financial industry isn't about to give away distribution since it is an absolutely critical strategic advantage. If access remains closely guarded, change will be that much harder to foster, even if change should meaningfully benefit end investors.

      • • Inertia remains a powerful obstacle to investors appreciating the importance of the challenges ahead
