ETF Industry KPI – 6/20/2022

Week of June 13, 2022 KPI Summary
  • This week, the industry experienced 4 ETF launches and 2 closures, shifting the 1-year Open-to-Close ratio to 4.61 and total US ETFs to 2,950.
  • Tuesday is the first day of Summer! Let’s take a look at how the ETF industry recoiled during Spring 2022 (data compares March 20, 2022, to June 19, 2022).
    • 2.15% increase in total US ETFs (+62), but a -13.04% decrease in total assets (approximately $912 Bn).
    • From our 11 asset class categories, Managed Futures increased the most (93.29%) and Geared/Swaps had the largest drop (-23.10%). The two largest asset classes of Equity (75.62% of assets) and Fixed Income (19.04%) both declined -15.78% and -2.23% respectively.
    • -13.74% decrease in ETF expense ratio 12-month revenue.
    • Revenue from Active ETFs shot up from 10.92% to 11.64%.
    • 5 additional issuers by brand.
  • Spring of 2022 was a stormy and blustery season for Equity assets and most asset categories. ETF listings and issuers have increased at a slower rate than the last few seasons, but the open-to-close ratio remains high at 4.61. We’ll see if these trends continue into the Summer and if the ETF industry burns out or heats up.
  • The tracked indexes had similar poor experiences over the Spring. Toroso ETF Industry Index was down -20.98% while the S&P Financial Select Sector Index led at -20.19%.
