Is an Active ETF Revolution Afoot?

Actively managed ETFs could be the catalyst for a new order in the mutual fund world, according to Barron's mutual funds guru Brendan Conway.

Regulatory changes and moves by three giant shops could finally push actively managed ETFs to the forefront, he writes.

The legal move came in December when the SEC decided to allow derivative use again. The far more intriguing news came within a few weeks when both Fidelity [profile] and T. Rowe Price [profile[] made moves to get approval for active ETFs.

Conway notes that Franklin Templeton [profile] could also shake up the market.

He mentions some of the current major actively managed ETFs, noting that two from Pimco [profile] and one from WisdomTree [profile] dominate the space.
