Ryan Fitzgerald

  • This week, the industry experienced 17 ETF launches and 0 closures, shifting the 1-year Open-to-Close ratio to 2.03 and total US ETFs to 3,438.
  • On March 11, 2020, the WHO declared COVID-19 a global pandemic. As we cross the 4-year mark, let’s take a quick look at the ETF industry since then (data comparing 3/16/2020 to 3/10/2024).
    • Total Assets are up 126.9% over the past 4 years (~$3.8T to $8.6T), an increase of 1,122 ETFs to total US ETF count (3,438), and 167 additional issuers by brand (a 115.2% increase).
    • The two largest asset classes of Equity (78.7% of assets) and Fixed Income (17.9%) rose 138.3% and 80.1% respectively.
    • ETF expense ratio 12-month revenue rose from $6.8 Billion to $13.8 Billion.
  • Luckily most Americans’ covid masks are now collecting dust. On the other hand, the ETF industry is not collecting dust and practically doubled in most categories in the last 4 years!
  • The tracked indexes experienced similar performance last week. The Toroso ETF Industry Index was up 1.59% while the S&P Financial Select Sector Index trailed at 0.84%.
