Chris shares how Davis Advisors, long-time asset managers, were early pioneers in rolling out active ETFs, putting their trading strategies in the transparent wrapper without fear, and why a high-conviction active stock manager in a low-cost fund is a better option for many than simply buying the market through a cap-weighted index.
