  Looking forward to 2022, many fund companies have told reporters that ETFs are still a key business. As of the end of November this year, the total scale of public funds in my country has exceeded 25 trillion yuan, and the scale of ETFs is relatively small.

How to proceed with the ETF development of fund companies under the "Law of the Jungle" has become a new topic of concern in the industry.
