Global ETF launches for 12th to 19th May

It’s been quite the week for launches in the ETF world. Not many launches but those that happened are quite notable.

US digital giant Grayscale, with USD19 billion in its bitcoin trust in the US, has launched its first ETF in Europe and, sticking with the crypto theme, Swiss-based 21Shares launched its first US products.

Separately, US fund giant SEI stepped into ETF waters for the first time in the US, with Kevin Barr, Head of SEI’s Investment Management Unit, in an interview with ETF Express, explaining that their active ETF range will be coming to Europe.
