[PODCAST] - The state of ETFs with Ryan Sullivan, Head of US ETF Services, BBH

Updated: May 5

When the Central Bank of Ireland published its ETF Discussion Paper in late 2017, one of its objectives was to gather information on the resilience of the ETF structure so that it could better anticipate how ETFs might behave in stressed market conditions. 


What were theoretical scenarios then are being played out for real as we live through the COVID-19 crisis and the resultant market volatility? 


Being a bit of an ETF nerd, I was really interested to find out:


  1. How ETFs are performing from an operational perspective in the current market environment. 

  2. Why has the US Fed decided to buy units of US corporate bond ETFs? 

  3. Why were ETF units trading at persistent discounts and has this changed now? 

  4. What does the future hold for ETFs – will they still prove increasingly popular? 

  5. Will semi-transparent ETFs take over the world??


So many questions!


And who better to satisfy my curiosity than Ryan Sullivan, Head of US ETF Services at BBH. 


Ryan is affable, engaging, funny and can easily be described as a titan within the area of ETFs.


From what the COVID-19 lockdown is like in Massachusetts to whether it’s a good idea to let your wife cut your hair, to ETFs, we cover a lot of ground in this episode.


Honourable shout-out to Adrian Whelan for nominating Ryan to guest on this podcast and, of course, to Ryan for sharing his knowledge and insights and for being a generally top bloke.
