My favorite ETF reads over the past week, along with my ETF tweet and chart of the week!


Can Indexers Break The Rules, If There Are No Rules To Break? by Lara Crigger

“The entity that actually makes the core decisions on which securities end up inside an ETF, and which has significant financial stake in the success of said ETF, doesn’t actually get regulated by the securities regulators at all.”

ETF Chart of the Week:  Some investors might be surprised to learn Invesco offers a suite of low cost, plain-Vanilla ETFs in the same spirit as iShares Core or the Vanguard ETF lineup.  For whatever reason, Invesco hasn’t exactly marketed these “PureBeta” ETFs and, despite launching over 3 years ago, the 6 ETF lineup had only gathered about $125 million in assets.  That is, until last week, when the Invesco PureBeta MSCI USA ETF (PBUS) saw an $860 million inflow!
