About Us

Money goes where it's treated best. That simple truth is a big reason why more and more money—trillions, in fact—flows into a powerful, low-cost tool that's quietly transformed investing in recent years. Exchange-traded funds, or ETFs, let you invest in everything from the stock market to gold like never before. This biweekly podcast will demystify them—and delight you in the process.

Introducing Foundering

Adam Neumann had a vision: to make his startup WeWork a wildly successful company that would change the world. He convinced thousands of other people -- customers, employees, investors -- that he could make that dream a reality. And for a while, he did. He was one of the most successful startup founders in the world. But then, in the span of just a few months, everything changed. Foundering is a new serialized podcast from the journalists at Bloomberg Technology. This season, we’ll tell you the story of WeWork, a company that captured the startup boom of the 2010s and also may be remembered as a spectacular bust that marked the end of an era. Catch the first two episodes of Foundering, now available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you listen.

Halftime Report: A Roundtable Discussion

The first six months of 2020 has felt more like five years, at least in ETF terms. So much has happened: the lockdown, the selloff, the rebound, the Fed, not to mention oil, airlines, ANTs, ESG, and day-trading on Robinhood. On this episode of Trillions, Eric and Joel invite the Bloomberg Intelligence team of analysts, including Athanasisos Psarofagis, James Seyffart and Morgan Barna, to discuss and debate all the big ETF topics from the first half, as well as themes to watch in the second half.

Halftime Report: A Roundtable Discussion

Inside an ETF Platform Catering to 100,000 Financial Advisers

One of the biggest rising trends in the ETF world is the rise of model portfolios, which are almost like pre-packaged meals. On this episode of Trillions, Eric and Joel -- along with Morgan Barna, an ETF research associate with Bloomberg Intelligence -- speak with Tim Clift, chief investment strategist at Envestnet, one of these proverbial "supermarkets" where advisers go shopping on behalf of their clients. They discuss how ETFs get on the platform as well as who makes and uses the models.

JETSANITY: How a Obscure Airline ETF Became an Overnight Sensation

The US Global Jets ETF (JETS) has seen over half a billion dollars worth of inflows over 50 straight days - unheard numbers for a thematic ETF - despite the fund's 60% year-to-date decline and selling from Warren Buffett. But the depressed airline industry is attracting retail value investors in droves who see huge upside potential as well as looking for a proxy for the re-opening and rebound of the global economy. On this episode of Trillions we interview the founder of JETS, Frank Holmes, about his surprising success after five years of almost no interest in the fund. He also gives his outlook on the airline industry as well as the more-than-meets-the-eye design of the index it tracks.

WTF WTI: An Oil ETF Goes Wild

The lockdown has roiled oil markets and with it the world's largest oil ETF, USO, which has changed its exposure almost daily, gone through a reverse split and halted creations after seeing a huge influx of investors looking to call a bottom in oil. On this episode of Trillions, Joel and Eric are joined by Peter Tchir, Head of Macro Strategy for Academy Securities, to break down the USO story and discuss whether an ETF like this should exist and what alternative exist for investors hellbent on trying to time an oil rebound. Peter also gives his take on bond ETFs and brings his sector ETF picks.

A Conversation With ETF Issuer Jan Van Eck

When you are an ETF issuer, you typically have some products doing well — and other ones doing less well. No better example of that than VanEck Vectors, an eclectic brand of ETFs that reflect the many phases of this year's wild ride. On this episode Trillions, Joel and Eric chat with the firm's CEO, Jan Van Eck, about the Fed's ETF plans, fallen-angel bonds, high-yield munis, video games, and the juxtaposition of offering both green and coal ETFs.

Takeaways From the Carnage

March started in one place (high) and ended in another (low). Amid the carnage, traders and investors leaned on ETFs, which saw record volumes. On this episode of Trillions, Eric and Joel speak with Bloomberg Intelligence ETF analyst Athanasios Psarofagis about who the winners and losers in the selloff were, who benefits most from the Fed's rescue plan and how the stage is set for smart-beta to have its next "immaculate rebalance."

What the Actual ETF Is Going on Right Now

Remember the good old days? An unloved, decade-long bull market that never seemed to end? When investments went only up? Well, the coronavirus crash of 2020 has turned those fun times into distant memories. At its worst point during the recent sell-off, more than $10 trillion of equity value was erased, wiping out three years of gains. So how have ETFs been faring amid all the carnage? Katherine Griefeld, a reporter with Bloomberg News, joins Eric and Joel to discuss liquidity, flows, fixed income, exotics, leveraged ETFs, and more. All three recorded from their closets.

Biotech ETFs Vs. The Coronavirus

While much of the stock market has suffered over the past few weeks thanks to fear of the new coronavirus and its global economic fallout, there are a handful of stocks and exchange traded-funds that have managed to avoid damage, and even flourish. On this coronavirus-themed episode of Trillions, Bloomberg Intelligence Senior ETF Analyst Eric Balchunas and Bloomberg Businessweek Editor Joel Weber dive into the world of niche biotech ETFs. Joining them are Paul Yook and Ryan Cinalli of LifeSci Index Partners, who have launched Virtus LifeSci Biotech Product ETF and Virtus LifeSci Biotech Clinical Trials ETF, and are currently working on a third.
