The Wall Street Journal's
Ari Weinberg picked up
on buzz from market watchers on which ETF firms could be takeover targets. Possible targets include
ETF Securities Group
and WisdomTree Investments
, according to Weinberg's article, which is part of the WSJ's Investing in Funds special section.
"ETF Securities is said to be considering an initial public offering, sometimes an invitation
to prospective buyers," wrote Weinberg. "WisdomTree, which last month listed on Nasdaq, is largely insider-owned."
A WisdomTree spokesperson told Weinberg that the company is "not blind to the fact that
it may be viewed as an attractive acquisition target."
