Creation & Redemption Process of ETFs

September 13, 2021 | The Switch

 
ARK Invest,

On this season of ‘The Switch’, ARK Client Portfolio Manager, Ren Leggi, is joined by ETF Trends CEO, Tom Lydon, and CIO, Dave Nadig, to examine the mechanics of exchange traded funds (ETFs). In episode two, we take a deep dive into the creation and redemption process, what it means for liquidity, and the advantages of active vs. passive investing.

The Switch, a weekly video series created by ARK Invest, aims to help investors understand ETFs and investing in innovation. Each season, we’re joined by ETF Trends and ETF Database to help us break down a specific topic so that you and your portfolio can stay on the right side of technological change.

We hope every episode delivers that “light-bulb moment” of realization and clarity, ultimately flipping The Switch!
