Mutual Fund Conversions to ETFs

In this panel discussion, the Maples Group ETF team examine one of the emerging trends in the ETF space, the conversion of Mutual Funds into Exchange Traded Funds ("ETFs").

We examine the legal and operational considerations to be taken into account in the ETF ecosystem when considering a Mutual Fund ETF conversion. We shed light on the core considerations for investors and managers to assess from a regulatory perspective including relevant marketing permissions, market notification filings, assessment of the current market that the mutual fund is registered as well as further Global Registration aspects.

We also discuss recent Listing trends and timing considerations for managers across the different Listing Exchanges and outline how the Maples Group ETF team can assist in the Mutual Fund conversion process.
