Investors are faced with various unknowns in all market environments – from interest rate fluctuations, inflation, and geopolitical conflicts to market volatility. While we can’t be immune to all these challenges, arming oneself with a flexible, actively managed investment solution that can adapt to changing opportunities and risks can be a sensible starting point.

* This ETF is different from traditional ETFs – traditional ETFs tell the public what assets they hold each day; this ETF will not. This may create additional risks. For example, since this ETF provides less information to traders, they may charge you more money to trade this ETF’s shares. Also, the price you pay to buy or sell ETF shares on an exchange may not match the value of the ETF’s portfolio. These risks may be even greater in bad or uncertain markets. See the ETF prospectus for more information.

Why Active ETFs?

We already know that ETF investing can provide superior liquidity, lower costs, and greater tax efficiency relative to some other investment vehicles. Active ETFs can offer the added potential for enhanced risk-adjusted returns based on a skilled portfolio manager’s decision-making and investment process.

While active managers are, of course, challenged when navigating elevated market volatility, their investment insights are supported by proprietary research resources and a team of research analysts to opportunistically select investments with the most compelling risk/reward profiles. In fact, for portfolio managers whose strategies follow a long-term time horizon, short-term market volatility can also be viewed as an opportunity to buy stocks or bonds of quality companies at discounted prices.
