Several traditional mutual fund firms have been pursuing partnerships with traditional ETF providers. How might this trend affect investors?

The Gold-rated Matthews fund will undergo a change to protect the integrity of its investment process. Also, Goldman Sachs Asset Management's Rob Cignarella exits, Dreyfus rolls out a floating-rate fund, RiverPark launches a "strategic income" fund, Nomura to exit the U.S. fund business, and Santander and Bradesco ready U.S. fund launches.

Yes, more ETFs and ETNs have closed than in any other year. But it bodes well for investors, with fewer thinly traded products, consolidated liquidity, and greater price competition.
