Active non-transparent ETFs and mutual funds – A transformational change?

In a March 2019 blog titled ETFs – Looking into the future, I referenced an earlier blog post from February 2018, ETFs: An industry in flux.  I wrote in this earlier blog that, subject to regulatory approval, I hoped to see a great deal of product innovation in 2018—namely actively-managed, non-transparent ETFs.  Well, it seems that at last, and better late than never, the SEC has finally given conditional approval to one strategy: Precidian’s ActiveShares.
