Vanguard is looking to expand into active ETFs

Vanguard filed paperwork this morning with the SEC requesting permission to add active ETFs to its lineup.

The first active ETFs could be based on the following popular mutual funds: Vanguard Wellington (VWELX), Vanguard Explorer (VEXPX) and Vanguard Wellesley Income Fund (VWINX); the filing also included a number of muni-bond funds.

Active ETFs seem to an emerging trend, as a number of firms have recently filed for SEC permission to offer these funds to investors.

Vanguard's most popular ETFs: VTI, VWQ, VNQ, VEW, VIG, BND

    Would love to see some Vanguard munis as ETFs, especially VWAHX.

    As long as the expense ratios are low like its other ETF's I think they would be good in a portfolio.
