Exchange-traded funds are becoming increasingly popular with Australian investors. There has been strong growth in the number of listed active ETFs in particular since 2015, with 16 such funds now listed on the local sharemarket. BetaShares has launched two new active ETFs in a co-branding arrangement with Legg Mason, and BetaShares MD Alex Vynokur says this trend is likely to continue. He adds that institutional investors as well as retail investors are driving the demand for active ETFs.
