Sutherland Partner Clifford E. Kirsch is co-chair of a PLI event entitled "Nuts and Bolts of Financial Products 2010," February 22-23, 2010, in New York City. Cliff is providing the introduction and opening remarks. Additionally, Sutherland Partner W. Thomas Conner is speaking at the event. Tom will present on "Exchange Traded Funds/Exchange Traded Notes." His presentation will comprise: overview of the market; economic similarities and differences between types of products; and regulatory considerations, including Investment Company Act issues, Securities Act registration, listing and trading questions, and the need for exemptive or no-action relief.
The explosion of new financial products over the past 10 years, and the implosion of the credit markets in 2008, underline the importance of a basic understanding of these complex financial instruments. Increasingly complex derivative instruments, and credit derivatives in particular, may have contributed to some institutions assuming risks they did not fully understand. Bank hybrid securities, once so popular because of their tax and rating agency treatment, are now being unwound at a record pace. Exchange-traded funds, and now their competitors' exchange-traded notes, have brought changes to the investment management industry. This seminar is designed as a hands-on learning tool to explain the fundamentals that you need to know when dealing with various financial investment products.
