  • What are the major trends in the design and distribution of mutual funds?
  • How is Fintech changing the landscape?
  • Will ETFs ever overtake mutual funds as the dominant pooled investment vehicle for the retail investor?
  • Where do hedge funds fit in the investment fund landscape?
  • Will new SEC rules drive managers out of the mutual fund business?
  • Does the new SEC signal a new era of fund deregulation?
