EY and SGV launch EY’s Annual Global ETF Survey


Last 24 November 2015, EY and SGV hosted a seminar to launch EY’s Annual Global Exchange Traded Fund or ETF Survey. This seminar is part of a roadshow series taking place in a number of locations across Asia Pacific.

The seminar shared the results of the ETF survey, a global industry study involving leading promoters, investors, market makers and service providers across the US, Europe and Asia Pacific. SGV Assurance Partner and Financial Services Organization Leader Vicky Lee-Salas welcomed the guests to the seminar. EY Asia Pacific FSO Leaders Graeme McKenzie and Julie Kerr then proceeded to discuss the ETF landscape.

Industry leaders were also there to hold a panel discussion on the growth potential of the ETF industry in the Philippines, which was moderated by Julie Kerr. Panelists included Ms. Reina Pama from Sun Life Asset Management, Mr. John Benette Mamangun from the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE), Mr. Jojo Dispo from First Metro Investment Corporation, and Mr. Hans Sicat, the President of the PSE.

There were 40 participants including bank treasury and trust officers, investment officers of asset management and insurance companies, and representatives from the Insurance Commission and Home Development Mutual Fund attended the seminar. SGV Assurance Partner Ray Balagtas and SGV Associate Director Camille Eliseo helped organize the event, while SGV Director Leslie Huang served as the master of ceremonies.
