Morgan Stanley Seeks to Expand ETF Offering with New Applications

Morgan Stanley is making significant strides in the ETF industry, as it seeks to launch a new wave of exchange-traded funds after re-entering the market in February. Having played a key role in the birth of the now-$7.5 trillion industry three decades ago, the firm recently filed applications for several new ETFs with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

The applications include the Eaton Vance Ultra-Short Income ETF, the Eaton Vance High Yield ETF, and the Eaton Vance Intermediate Municipal Income ETF. Additionally, Morgan Stanley submitted applications for the Parametric Dividend Premium Income ETF and the Parametric Hedged Equity ETF. These moves come after Morgan Stanley’s acquisition of Eaton Vance, which also includes Parametric Portfolio Associates, in 2021.

Morgan Stanley’s re-entry into the ETF arena earlier this year was marked by the launch of six environmental, social, and governance-focused ETFs. These initial ETFs have already amassed nearly $400 million in assets, showcasing the firm’s commitment to expanding its ETF offerings further.

The tickers and fees for the newly proposed ETFs have not been disclosed yet.
