Who Will Be the Next to Launch Active ETF Versions of their Mutual Funds? Predictions.

edited September 2021 in Fund Discussions
I'm looking at the new fund filings for First Eagle and Artisan posted here and wondering how long before they start launching active ETFs instead of or in addition to mutual funds. Which fund families do you think will be next?


  • edited September 2021
    Capital Group, the firm that runs American Funds, will be launching six new active ETFs in the first quarter of 2022. It's interesting that these new ETFs will be transparent - holdings will be disclosed daily.
  • Thx for sharing that. Interesting They are disclosing holdings daily. Perhaps that works because American funds tend to have low turnover rates.
  • edited September 2021
    Yes, having low turnover rates will be helpful.
    Also, the new ETFs will "complement" but not clone existing mutual funds.
