Marijuana ETF launch and another examination of liquidity


The top story, for the sake of the image alone this week, (yes, we are that shallow – it’s August), is the latest launch of a marijuana-based ETF.

Meanwhile, Philippa Aylmer writes on the papers published by EFAMA and the European Systemic Risk Board, debating concerns on ETF liquidity and any threat that might be posed to the capital markets. Concern is inevitable but misplaced says EFAMA’s Federico Cupelli in our detailed piece on the subject.
