The growing importance of active ETFs (german)

Active ETFs are becoming increasingly popular and offer traditional fund providers the opportunity to benefit directly or indirectly via white label platforms from the distribution opportunities of the ETF market. Investors, in turn, gain access to a wider variety of low-cost active investment strategies. What is driving the demand for active ETFs and what added value do active strategies offer?

The German private investor market as a growth driver for ETFs in Europe (german)

Until a few years ago, the European ETF market was dominated by institutional investors. Since the pandemic, however, investor behavior in Europe has changed significantly, especially in Germany, where demand for savings plans is growing rapidly. We discuss the background to this trend and how interest in long-term wealth accumulation with ETFs can be further encouraged.
