Buying into these funds, Brendan Conway writes, means that investors are embracing more active and tactical investing strategies, and are likely paying a premium.

The products noted in the article include:

WisdomTree's WisdomTree Japan Hedged Equity Fund
Guggenheim's Guggenheim S&P 500 Equal Weight
Vanguard's Vanguard S&P 500
iShares' iShares MSCI USA Minimum Volatility Index
