ETF Industry KPI – 10/24/2022

Week of October 17, 2022 KPI Summary
  • This week, the industry experienced 6 ETF launches and 2 closures, shifting the 1-year Open-to-Close ratio to 3.21 and total US ETFs to 3,046.
  • This week’s 1-week change in assets of 3.24% is the highest since July 31, 2022 KPIs, which was 12 weeks ago and a 3.50% change. At that time, the total assets were $6.62 Trillion compared to $6.13 Trillion today.
  • When looking back at KPIs from 1 year ago (10/24/21), here are some other positive metrics that stand out:
    • Total ETFs have increased +347, almost one per day.
    • There are +51 issuers, and in fact, +115 over a 2-year timeline, which is a 75% gain while the number of ETFs has only increased 32% over the same time period (2-years).
      • This attests to last week’s issuer check-in. While the majority of assets are with the top-20 issuers, there are new issuers every week bringing innovative funds into the ETF universe, despite varying market cycles.
    • Revenue from Active ETFs has increased from 9.73% to 12.33% of the industry today, a trend we have touched on throughout 2022.
  • The tracked indexes had similar experiences in the past week. The Toroso ETF Industry Index was up 4.24% while the S&P Financial Select Sector Index trailed at 3.93%.
