On selection of the strategies for the new funds, Pierce said to ETF Trends: “These eight U.S.-listed ETFs are designed to cover most of the core exposures in a typical strategic asset allocation plan and to complement the existing investment capabilities from our investment firms.”
On the two zero-fee ETFs she said: “The BNY Mellon US Large Cap Core Equity and Core Bond ETFs will mark the first time zero-fee ETFs are available in the largest equity and fixed income categories in the US ETF market from a leading financial institution. These are being offered at zero fees to our clients with no waivers, no limitations, and no restrictions. With our ETFs, clients can build a 60/40 balanced portfolio and gain the benefits that lower expenses can have on their long-term returns.”
