Smaller ETFS Face Giant Obstacles

News summary by MFWire's editors

Things aren't what they seem to be in the world of exchange-traded funds.

The Wall Street Journal reports that while ETFs seem to be showing solid growth, some companies, particularly smaller players and newcomers, haven't been able to break even on their funds and are dissolving them as a result.

So far this year, 129 new ETFs have hit the market, and sponsors have liquidated or announced the closing of 37 portfolios, wrote Ari Weinberg, citing data from Ron Rowland of the newsletter Invest With an Edge.

David Abner, director of institutional sales and trading for ETF sponsor WisdomTree Investments [see profile]; BlackRock's iShares [see profile]; State Street Global Advisors [see profile]; Pimco [see profile]; Charles Schwab [see profile]; Paul Hrabal, president of U.S. One [see profile]; and Rick Genoni, head of ETF products at Vanguard [see profile], were all mentioned in the article.
