ETF Shops Want More Active Management

Rising interest rates and volatility increasing in fixed-income markets has inspired ETF sponsors to consider launching funds for bond investors, InvestmentNews reports.

Fifty-seven percent of sponsors intend to introduce actively managed ETFs this year, according to a survey by Cerulli Associate Inc in the first quarter of 2013. Pimco [profile] Total Return ETF may have spurred some of the interest. The ETF has attracted $5 billion since its launch early last year.

Pimco plans to launch three actively managed ETFs soon: Pimco Real Return, Pimco Diversified Income and Pimco Low Duration. First Trust [profile] Portfolios launched a high yield ETF in February and Columbia Management Investment Advisors [profile] has filed to launch 17 new actively managed ETFs across fixed-income and equity.
