This Week’s ETF Launches: Actively-Managed ETFs Reclaim Spotlight

Hey everyone!

As many of you know, I'm a regular contributor over at One of the features I write every week is the "New ETF Launches" column. Since the information in the column should be useful to ETF Focus readers, I'm going to regularly publish it here as well.



Most of the focus in the ETF industry goes to passively-managed index funds since they attract the lion’s share of new investor money.

This week, actively-managed ETFs take center stage with three new offerings, including two from first-time ETF provider Spinnaker Trust.

Here are this week’s new fund launches:
