Cboe Lists for Trading Four Active Non-Transparent ETFs from Invesco
Cboe recently listed for trading four active non-transparent ETFs from Invesco Ltd. Unlike traditional exchange-traded funds (ETFs) which disclose portfolio holdings on a daily basis, semi-transparent ETFs, also referred to as "non-transparent" ETFs, allow asset managers to deliver their actively managed investment strategies in an ETF vehicle, without the disclosure requirements of traditional ETFs. These ETFs typically enable asset managers to take advantage of the liquidity and tax-advantage benefits of the ETF structure, while keeping their strategy hidden to protect shareholders.
