ETF Industry KPI – 4/8/2024

Week of April 1, 2024 KPI Summary

Ryan Fitzgerald

  • This week, the industry experienced 16 ETF launches and 1 closure, shifting the 1-year Open-to-Close ratio to 2.16 and total US ETFs to 3,467.
  • The third and final chapter of our Issuer Madness Bracket has arrived. Two of the powerhouses of Blackrock’s iShares (UConn) and State Street’s SPDR (Purdue) are meeting in the Final game tonight. Let’s explore these Issuers’ latest performances and interesting match-ups to determine who we think will win it all tonight!
    • Match-ups:
      • Purdue is the underdog tonight, but they do have the tallest player in the game and whole tournament, Zach Edey, coming in at 7’4”. Similarly, State Street’s SPY is the largest fund between the two and the whole ETF universe at $528.6 Billion, approximately 6% of total ETF assets.
      • On the other hand, UConn is known for its balanced approach with 5 players averaging 11-15 points on the season. Likewise, iShares top 5 ETFs (IVV, IEFA, AGG, IWF, and IJH) combine to $841.9 Billion, nearly ten percent of the industry. Meanwhile, SPDR top 5 ETFs total $735.9 Billion.
    • Performances:
      • While iShares has increased about $10 Billion in the last two weeks (since 3/25/24), SPDR has actually declined $0.13 Billion over the same time.
      • Conversely, the “starting 5’s” for these issuers have had different stories. Over the past month, iShares’ top 5 ETFs have increased 1.7% while SPDR’s starting 5 have increased 4.8% on average, with XLE being the stand out performer (+13.8%).
  • With Match-up and Performance categories having arguments both ways, it is too close to call. We are rooting for a great game and let the best team and Issuer prevail!
  • The tracked indexes experienced similar performance last week. The Toroso ETF Industry Index was up 4.22% while the S&P Financial Select Sector Index trailed at 3.21%.
