iShares Enters Active ETF Space

News summary by MFWire's editors

ETFs are getting active.

iShares [profile] plans to bring to market a number of active ETFs and so-called "smart beta" products, according to IndexUniverse.

For example, iShares will bring to market Thursday three U.S. equities ETFs linked to the MSCI USA Index that weight securities based on momentum, risk and value measures. The firm is also rolling out a pair of actively managed U.S. equities funds.

The MSCI funds are the iShares MSCI USA Momentum Factor Index Fund, the iShares MSCI USA Size Factor ETF and the iShares MSCI USA Value Factor ETF are based on the MSCI USA Index, consisting of securities in the top 85 percentile by market cap.

According to IndexUniverse, the "planned funds are part of a relatively new trend in the ETF market centering on “smart beta” or so-called strategy indexes that attempt to carve up the investment universe on the basis of specific factors; in this case, momentum, risk and value."

Moreover, iShares will launch Thursday two actively managed ETFs, the iShares Enhanced U.S. Large-Cap ETF and the iShares Enhanced U.S. Small-Cap ETF.
