Active ETFs in Europe: Small, Shy, and on the Rise

The universe is growing, but offerings are less active than expected.

Exchange-traded funds used to be synonymous with passive investing, but in recent years, assets in active ETFs in Europe have experienced exponential growth. As of March 2024, European investors have access to 87 active ETFs, which have accumulated approximately EUR 33.8 billion in assets.
