Show Notes

Nerina Visser is the leading ETF expert in South Africa.

Magic Markets hosts The Finance Ghost and Mohammed Nalla (Moe-Knows) had the pleasure of hosting her on Magic Markets in Episode 4 and they were excited to welcome her back for Episode 40!

In this show, some of the more technical elements of ETFs and ETNs are discussed. For example, there are important differences between the two structures when it comes to underlying risk.

Nerina also addresses the misconception that ETFs are purely a "passive" investment decision.

With plenty of laughs along the way, Nerina also reveals what the hosts suspected to be true: (almost) all of her money is invested in ETFs!

Magic Markets is your invitation into the dealing room to be part of these conversations with global market and investment experts.
