Christian Charest: For Morningstar, I'm Christian Charest. As of June 30th, assets under management for exchange-traded funds in Canada had reached more than $130 billion, which is a one-year increase of more than 27%. And while there are number of new ETFs that are actively managed, the vast majority of those assets are going to passive index strategies. So, does this mean the end is approaching for active management? To talk about this, I'm joined today by Karl Cheong, Head of ETFs at First Trust.
