My favorite ETF reads over the past week, along with my ETF tweet and chart of the week!
“Morgan Stanley, Neuberger Berman, SEI and Matthews Asia, which manage a combined $3tn, have recently launched or indicated their intention to launch their debut ETFs.”
“Future-based ETFs have to factor in the cost of continuously rolling forward contracts as they expire, which only strengthens the case for a spot Bitcoin ETF.”
“There is no perfect ESG company. We’re trying to find the cleanest shirt in the dirty laundry.”
“ESG ETFs may be finding that people care a lot more about them in bull markets.”
“Wood’s willingness to make such calls so far ahead of reality — and so out of step with Wall Street’s old guard — has earned her a rockstar reputation.”
“It has generally had a first-to-market advantage in many of its products, so it has not been subject to the same level of fee compression that has been plaguing the overall ETF industry.”
“If you’re only owning ETFs with companies that boosted dividends for 20 years, you’re missing much of the action.”
ETF Tweet of the Week: Many in the ETF industry, including yours truly, gathered in Hollywood, Florida last week for the Inside ETFs conference. Two fun facts related to the below tweet: 1) After moderating a lively bitcoin ETF panel, I actually hi-fived Perth backstage as she was on her way up the stairs to deliver this excellent presentation. 2) Yesterday, we learned that Morningstar awarded the Freedom 100 Emerging Markets ETF (FRDM) a coveted 5-star ranking. You love to see it…
Now closing out the Inside ETFs sessions, @Perth_Tolle of Life and Liberty Indexes, takes to the stage to explore what you need to know about the risks, rewards and opportunities of investing in emerging markets.#insideetfs pic.twitter.com/sE8nJv5nzr

ETF Chart of the Week: The fastest growing ETF issuer this year? Pacer. Their Cash Cows Series of ETFs – led by the Pacer US Cash Cows 100 ETF (COWZ) – continues attracting investor interest. On the other end of the spectrum? ARK Invest. While ARK has actually experienced positive flows this year, poor performance has led to a substantial reduction in assets.
