Today's BlackRock (BLK)/Fidelity deal confirms U.S. Commodity Funds CEO John Hyland's thesis of the ETF industry moving into its "3rd era." Era #1 began with the launch of the SPY, and era #2 started with the GLD. The new era is "all about distribution" and reaching retail investors individually and via 401(k)s. For late entries into the ETF space who lack true distribution capabilities - BEN, TROW, EV - the ship may have already sailed.
