Qatar Stock Exchange Holds A Seminar on Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs)
Oct 10, 2016
Qatar Stock Exchange held an introductory seminar on ETFs. The seminar was dedicated to the brokerage firms operating in the market. The purpose of the event was to generate awareness about ETFs, their investment characteristics and benefits, as well as their formation and trading mechanisms. The seminar comes in the context of training and investment awareness campaigns that are regularly and frequently organized by QSE.  It also comes in light of QSE’s preparations to launch this product in the Qatari market.

The participants discussed the importance of ETFs to the local capital market and said that they are very vital to build investment portfolios and thus they are widely used by institutional investors and increasingly by financial advisors and retail investors to achieve passive exposure according to their preferred investment strategies. 

ETFs can be bought and sold like shares throughout the trading day. Individual investors may purchase or sell an ETF via their broker, and may enter the same types of orders that are placed for shares. ETFs offer exposure to a diversified portfolio of stocks with a single execution. Investors have full transparency of the underlying portfolio of intra-day priced assets, with holdings disclosed on a regular, frequent basis.
