Barron's Weighs In on the ETF War

News summary by MFWire's editors

A Barron's article from this weekend weighs in on the latest round of what writer Beverly Goodman calls the "inane-but-ever-present 'ETF versus mutual fund' debate."

Goodman says that even with a few recent ETF shutdowns and more to possibly come, ETFs are not on the verge of extinction.

The article focuses some attention on Pimco's [profile] Total Return ETF, noting that the difference maker on that $2.5 billion fund is the same as it always is with Pimco: Bill Gross.

"Pimco is a great example that if you're going to be late to the game, you have to bring something very different to the table," said Michael Johnston, co-founder and CEO of ETF Database, to Barron's. "They brought Bill Gross to the table. No other firm can do that."
