Franklin Templeton has just unveiled plans for new actively managed Irish-domiciled ETFs, looking to launch on Asian markets. They plan to bring a select group of around 50 active existing products to other big markets. The co-head of their Asia-Pacific fund house said that the firm is looking to, “provide clients with value that’s going to be differentiated and alpha-driven, so it’s really bringing the active ideas into the market.” Making an entry in the Asia ETF space could be challenging but investor demand is still growing in the region.
