ETFs for Beginners
Jamie Hannah - VanEck | Gaming Esport and Clean Energy ETFs
Jamie Hannah is the Deputy Head of Investments and Capital Markets at VanEck Australia. He currently manages 28 Exchange Traded Funds (ETF’s) with more than $9 billion under management. We spoke about 2 VanEck thematic ETFs - Esports and Gaming (ASX:ESPO), and Clean Energy (ASX:CLNE). "There are over 3 billion gamers in the world, generating $180 billion in revenue. The movie industry globally only generated a $100 billion and the music industry around $40 to 50 billion." But he also warns that "Thematics should only be a small portion of anyone's portfolio. You may make some good money out of it, but it should never be the backbone of any long-term planning" because "Long-term wealth is all about long-term investment in good quality companies over a longer period of time."
Clean Energy ETF trades under the code CLNE, and Esports and Gaming is trading under the code ESPO. Find out more at: https://www.vaneck.com.au/
