Over the past few weeks, the ETF industry has come under fire as the Securities and Exchange Commission continues its investigation into the use of derivatives in the trading and structure of exchange traded products.Although ETFs were originally designed to passively track a basket of stocks or bonds, as the industry has evolved fund providers have launched a vast number of products that use derivatives, allowing investors to take bullish and bearish bets on broad markets or individual market slices. These derivatives can also be employed by actively managed products in order to help them better reflect their underlying indexes.
