    ETFs and ETNs are index funds or notes that mirror the composition of standard indexes such as the NASDAQ 100 or the Russell 2000. They may also include broad market, sectors, single countries or regions as well as fixed income. They allow investors to buy or sell exposure to an index through a single financial instrument.

    They offer many advantages from a tracking, cost and trading perspective. Their construction can also be underpinned by strong   innovation. This innovation can bring potential unintended consequences, to include leverage, credit, tax and enthusiasm.

    Join us at Invesco's office to hear two leading experts on ETFs and ETNs: Ben Fulton, Managing Director of Invesco PowerShares Capital  Management specializing in new product development and management; and  John G. Feyerer, CFA   Head of Product Strategy and Research.
