ETF Industry KPI – 6/27/22

Week of June 20, 2022 KPI Summary
  • This week, the industry experienced 7 ETF launches and 2 closures, shifting the 1-year Open-to-Close ratio to 4.51 and total US ETFs to 2,955.
  • Schools are out and summer has begun across the U.S. Most Americans will take one or more vacations during the summer months, so let’s take a look at the 6 non-leverage Travel and Leisure ETFs.
    • The category has $1.39 Billion across the 6 funds, with a large majority ($1.1 Billion) in Invesco’s PEJ which was launched in 2005. The remaining 5 funds (AWAY, BEDZ, CRUZ, JRNY, TRYP) are all from different Issuers and have been launched in the last two and a half years.
    • This portion of the ETF industry has been taking a beating lately, averaging -20.6% down over the past 3-months, while the industry overall has averaged -10.2% performance in the same time period.
      • When looking at the 1-year performance, AdvisorShare’s BEDZ leads the group at -17.3% with a group average of -24.5%. Plus, it is the only Actively managed fund in the category.
    • These funds have an average expense ratio of 0.69.
  • This is the third summer since Covid surfaced, and families are surely looking to travel safely if expenses allow. We’ll see if these ETFs can bounce back from getting pummeled in the last 3-months, or if recreational spending will continue to be at a minimum with inflation and market turmoil.
  • Both indexes experienced a large increase last week. Toroso ETF Industry Index was up 6.55% while the S&P Financial Select Sector Index trailed at 5.14%.
