After years in the shadows, active ETFs are having their day in the sun. According to Morningstar, in the first half of 2023, active ETFs grew 14%, albeit from a small base, far exceeding the 3% growth in passive ETFs in the same period.

In this webinar, we’ll delve into this emerging trend. Our experts will discuss:

  • Why active ETFs appeal to investors
  • What intermediaries are thinking about active ETFs
  • How active ETFs are changing the fund landscape
  • How active ETFs are being launched and structured: new funds, conversions, ETF share class, transparency
  • Infrastructure considerations for establishing an active ETF program
