for new active ETFs last week gains attention from ETFsHub.com
BlackRock's iShares unit already offers an actively-managed ETF following an absolute return strategy. The two new ETFs will be more traditional, focusing on bonds (iShares Active Fixed Income Fund) and stocks (iShares Active Equity Fund).
BeforeItsNews.com points to one strange fact surrounding the filing. The same day that iShares filed with the SEC (June 17), Deborah Fuhr, Global Head of ETF Research for BlackRock iShares, told attendees at a conference in Toronto that she has doubts about actively-managed ETFs catching on with investors.
The mystery, then, is whether to pay attention to iShares' actions or its words.
The report also notes that the universe of active-ETF providers is likely to boom from six today. There are currently 20 providers with these products sitting in the SEC queue.
