ETF Industry KPI – 7/3/2023

Week of June 26, 2023 KPI Summary

Ryan Fitzgerald

  • This week, the industry experienced 20 ETF launches and 10 closures, shifting the 1-year Open-to-Close ratio to 2.09 and total US ETFs to 3,195. This is the largest number of launches and closures reported in some time.
  • June capped off 4 consecutive months of positive asset growth and is the greatest of the 4. Let’s check out some other notable data from June. (Data comparing 6/11/23-7/2/23 – the first 11 days of June were used in the May overview)
    • Total assets increased 2.49%, there was an increase of 29 ETFs to total US ETF count (3,162), and -1 additional issuers by brand.
    • From our 11 asset class categories, Geared/Swaps increased the most (5.4%) with Allocation next (3.3%). Currency had the worst performance again (-10.2%) with Commodities Physical at second worst (-4.0%). The two largest asset classes of Equity (76.8% of assets) and Fixed Income (18.7%) rose 3.1% and 0.8% respectively.
      • Geared Swaps had the most increase for May and June.  
      • Currency has been in the bottom 2 for the past 4 months.
    • The ETF expense ratio annual revenue inched up from $11.9 Bn to $12.2 Bn.
  • June takes the silver medal from May as the second-best month in US ETF asset growth in 2023. Total assets have increased for the 4th month in a row. Remarkable, considering last month we mentioned that 3 months in a row hadn’t happened in 2+ years. Great increase of total ETFs (29), yet a surprising drop in issuer count as well.
  • The tracked indexes had similar positive experiences in June. The Toroso ETF Industry Index was up 5.2% while the S&P Financial Select Sector Index led at 6.7%.
