Indexing - why is indexing important for private investors?

Gareth Parker, Head of Indexing at Morningstar Indexes, will provide a short but informative guide to indexes: their origins, development over time, their current usage, and where index design and usage may be heading. His session should be of interest to anyone using indexes to benchmark the performance of their investments, who use index-based investments such as exchange traded funds (ETFs), or who are interested in the latest developments in thematic and “strategic beta” investing. Questions are encouraged!
