PHILADELPHIA – Stradley Ronon partner J. Stephen Feinour joined the New York Stock Exchange on Dec. 6 for a panel titled “ETF Playbook: How to Build a Successful ETF Business.” Steve, accompanied by a group of exchange-traded fund (ETF) industry veterans, reviewed what it takes to launch and build an ETF business. This discussion marks another iteration of this panel, with prior presentations at Stradley Ronon and the Cohen & Co. Client Conference.

Panelists discussed both market entry and day-to-day ETF business practices, including sizing the opportunity and economics within ETFs, understanding key players and their role in the ETF ecosystem, navigating market entry options, and building a plan to support entry and business growth.

Feinour, a member of the firm’s investment management practice, focuses on counseling investment companies and investment advisers on a wide range of issues arising under the Investment Company Act of 1940 and other federal securities laws. He regularly advises clients on matters such as the formation, registration and ongoing regulation of all types of investment companies, including 1940 Act ETFs, 1933 Act-only ETPs and mutual funds. In particular, he has advised numerous startup investment advisers and established global investment firms in developing, launching and operating index-based and actively managed ETFs across all asset classes.  This includes advising clients on digital-asset-related 1940 Act ETFs and 1933 Act-only ETPs.
