  • This past Friday November 11th, Americans celebrated Veterans Day to commemorate the service of all US military veterans. In a similar way, today’s KPI will acknowledge the ETF vets that have served our ecosystem the longest and are still open today.

      • 83 are categorized as Non-Traditional in our Security Master accounting for $817 Bn. The third oldest and largest (in assets) is QQQ, launched in 1999 and currently $162 Bn.
      • Lastly, 6 are Active ETFs which make up $31 Bn. The largest, DFUV, is currently $8.3 Bn and is actually the 4th oldest of the 6.
    • The 200 ETFs are branded by 8 issuers with iShares having the most funds (100). The next two are State Street (34) and Invesco (33).
  • Once again, thank you to all of the service men and women that have served our wonderful country. And thank you to the ETF veterans who have set the early foundations of this innovative and dynamic industry.
