List of Actively Managed ETFs

Actively Managed ETF List

Actively managed ETFs were spawned from the battle of ETFs vs Mutual funds. Investors liked the simplicity and advantages of ETFs, but also liked the active maintenance and trading that mutual funds offer. The hybrid was actively managed ETFs.
