Invesco Ltd., a leading global provider of exchange-traded funds (ETFs), has launched its first suite of active non-transparent ETFs. Ropes & Gray advised Invesco on the launch.

The four new non-transparent active ETFs began trading on Dec. 22 on the Cboe BZX Exchange. The four ETFs will leverage the unique perspective and specialized expertise of Invesco’s investment professionals in a structure that retains many of the characteristics that investors find attractive in an ETF structure, including an effective arbitrage mechanism, tax efficiency and intraday tradability.
