First JPMorgan Chase. Then Goldman Sachs. Now, Wells Fargo wants to charge into the biggest asset management battleground, exchange-traded funds.

The San Francisco-based bank’s fund unit is considering launching its first ETF within three to six months, company executives said. Following the success of giants that went before, Wells is beefing up its quant credentials as it prepares to compete for a chunk of the $4.1 trillion ETF pie.

So far, Wells Fargo has launched one factor mutual fund with the help of Analytic. It’s a low-volatility strategy similar to those that dominated the smart beta landscape earlier this year before suffering a deluge of outflows. Since its inception at the end of October, about $26 million has flowed to the product.

Wells Fargo has also toyed with the idea of launching an active ETF. Such securities have been around for over a decade, and, mostly due to high fees, only have about 1 percent of total assets, data compiled by Bloomberg show. The bank is also looking at offering fixed income funds based on factors.

My thesis on BlackBerry (NASDAQ:BBRY) remains the same. BlackBerry is on track to transform itself into a stagnated software business doing ~$600 million in revenues per year and running at a loss. For the privilege of buying into this business, investors today pay an enterprise value of ~$3.1 billion, already excluding the net cash BlackBerry has in its books.

Against the background provided by this thesis, the title on this article might seem weird. Yet, the title is entirely true. BlackBerry smartphones, after shrinking into irrelevance for years, are now about to sell mightily again, maybe even into the tens of millions of units per year. And yet, BlackBerry itself will remain on the exact same track as described in the first paragraph of this article.
