Citywire Podcast*: Putting the ETF in fund selection

Welcome to ‘Money, Markets, and Masterminds’ – a Citywire South Africa podcast – that delves into the intricate world of finance, investment and strategic decision-making.

My guest today is Gareth Stobie (pictured below), the founder of CoreShares, which has blossomed into a  flourishing passive investment management business and ETF issuer. At the point of its acquisition by 10X Investments – not too long ago – it had approximately R13,8bn under management.

Stobie is now director of strategy and corporate development at ETFSA and is working with other industry stalwarts such as Mike Brown and Nerina Visser.

Exchange-traded funds (ETFs)  have been around since the early 1990s, but in recent years their popularity has soared. Today, there are more ETFs listed on the JSE 222 to be exact) than single shares. In this podcast we’ll explore what’s driving this surge, the latest trends shaping the ETF landscape and what investors should keep an eye on moving forward.

Listen to our conversation…

I apologise for my husky voice on the podcast. Mother Nature’s cold Cape winter has not been kind to me this year!
