Welcome to this week’s ETF Insider.

ETFs that provide amped-up exposure to individual stocks like Tesla or JPMorgan Chase have not been around long enough to determine whether they are a fad or an enduring tool. But what is clear is that the boom in development of such strategies has generated buzz that advisors need to process (or drown out) in conducting due diligence.

Speaking of fads, cryptocurrencies are trying to prove that they are not one, and the firms pushing for a Bitcoin ETF are once again taking their case public. A new white paper argues that regulatory resistance to such ETFs is pushing crypto-crazed investors into riskier vehicles.
