Macquarie Asset Management Prepares to Enter Actively Managed ETF Market

Share post:

Macquarie Asset Management, one of Australia’s largest asset managers, is reportedly preparing to enter the actively managed ETF market, which is expected to give a boost to the ETF sector. The company plans to launch a range of actively managed ETFs that will provide listed access to its existing managed funds. The funds will primarily focus on listed securities, rather than unlisted infrastructure or private equity.

In addition to the ETF launch, Macquarie is said to be hiring a head of ETF strategy based in the United States. This individual will be responsible for developing a Macquarie ETF platform and driving the launch of active ETFs not only in Australia and the US but also in Asia, Europe, and Latin America.

ETF Newz Says:

The move by Macquarie follows a trend of active managers entering the ETF space, as they seek to expand their distribution channels beyond traditional avenues and intermediaries. Currently, around 50 asset managers are represented in the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) and Cboe, including firms like AMP, Perpetual, and AllianceBernstein.
