etfLIVE North America

etfexpress 28/08/20

The big news this week was that industry giant Vanguard is to pull out of Hong Kong and, in particular, its provision of ETFs in Hong Kong. Reasons given in its exclusive statement to ETF Express was that the business had turned out to be largely institutional and not the retail audience upon which its famously pared back business model is based.

Another industry giant, but this time, one new to the ETF industry, also spoke to ETF Express this week: read our interview with Tim Coyne of T Rowe Price which has stepped into the ETF pool with its launch of semi-transparent ETFs based on its own long-running active mutual funds.

We also spoke to Paul Dellaquila from Defiance ETFs, a firm which continues to build its portfolio of thematic ETFs, with the launch of a junior biotechnology ETF, and at just two years old has built an asset base of USD500 million.

It’s all about the active again this week, with latest figures from ETFGI revealing that active ETFs continued to gain record breaking assets in July.
