The Best Actively Managed ETFs

The table below compares the performance and other essential indicators like dividend yield and expense ratio of 506 Actively Managed ETFs.

Active ETFs are managed by a portfolio manager or team of managers who actively select and adjust the holdings in the fund rather than tracking a particular index. This means that the fund's holdings are based on the manager's investment strategy and research rather than simply following the performance of a specific index.

Active ETFs may be used to achieve a specific investment objective, such as growth, income, or capital preservation. Active ETF managers use their expertise and judgment to identify and invest in securities they believe will perform well. They may also use investment strategies such as short selling, derivatives, or leverage to achieve their investment objectives.
