Rise of Active ETFs is among trends shaping and fuelling “ETF 2.0”

Twenty years after their introduction in the investment industry, exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are evolving and gaining momentum more rapidly than in the past, according to a report from SEI, a leading provider of asset management and fund administration services. The report, ‘ETF 2.0: Six Trends Shaping the Next Generation’, identifies six trends that could help push ETF assets to a projected $5 trillion by 2020. John Alshefski, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of SEI’s Investment Manager Services division, said: “The [ETF] industry is evolving on all fronts at once, making a leap much like the one that took the internet from static pages of text to the interactive, graphics-based Web 2.0 environment we operate in today.”
