Asset Management Counsel Ed Baer Discusses Mutual Fund to ETF Conversions in MarketWatch

Practices: Asset Management, Investment Management, Mutual Funds, ETFs & Closed-End Funds

Insights from asset management counsel Ed Baer are included in an April 14 MarketWatch article titled “Will mutual funds get a second wind... as ETFs?” that discusses whether a coming wave of mutual funds being converted into ETFs as inevitable. “[T]o the extent that the ETF is a better vehicle, it would be great if managers could do conversions. Someone just has to do the first one. No-one has taken the plunge yet because it will be time-consuming and difficult,” Ed said.

The article also cites a whitepaper co-authored by Ed, and asset management partners Brian McCabe and Jeremy Smith titled Converting Traditional Open-End Funds into ETFs.”
