ETF Industry KPI – 1/22/2024

Week of January 15, 2024 KPI Summary

Ryan Fitzgerald

  • This week, the industry experienced 9 ETF launches and 0 closures, shifting the 1-year Open-to-Close ratio to 2.09 and total US ETFs to 3,403.
  • The 3,400 total ETFs mark has officially been crossed! The industry reached 3,100 ETFs exactly 1 year ago.
  • While it took about a year to get from 3,000 to 3,200, it’s taken only 5 months to get the next 200. We reported the largest influx in September with 78 launches in 3 weeks alone.
  • The most recent 100 ETFs have been across the last 15 weeks. Amazingly, there have been 82 closures in that time period, and the industry is still up +102 funds.
    • While there is plenty of trimming of outdated and unsuccessful funds, it appears there is plenty of innovation and faith in new launches.
  • In the last 15 weeks (since 10/9/23), total issuers have also increased from 297 to 310. From 3,200 to 3,300 ETFs, issuers only increased +6 for contrast.
  • In previous iterations of these +100 ETF milestone updates, we have noted that it took exactly 147 days from 2,900 to 3,000 total ETFs AND 3,000 to 3,100 ETFs – a strange coincidence.  Well, that trend has not continued with the last 3 time periods being 217 days, 42 days, and 105 days respectively (121.3 day average).
    • As luck would have it though, the last 200 ETFs are 42 days + 105 days = 147 days!
  • The tracked indexes experienced similar performance last week. The Toroso ETF Industry Index was down 0.33% while the S&P Financial Select Sector Index led at 0.96%.
