ETF Industry KPI – 7/10/2023

Week of July 3, 2023 KPI Summary

Ryan Fitzgerald

  • This week, the industry experienced 5 ETF launches and 12 closures, shifting the 1-year Open-to-Close ratio to 1.98 and total US ETFs to 3,188.
    • The Open-to-close ratio hasn’t been below 2.00 since June 27, 2021, climbing as high as 5.59 in that 24.5 month period.
  • Two weeks ago, we took a look at Spring 2023 KPIs, which are very similar to the Q2 data we would portray. With that in mind, let’s take a 1-year perspective on the ETF industry as we crossed halfway into 2023 (data comparing 7/10/22 to 7/9/23):
    • Total assets increased 15.5% – there was an increase of 220 ETFs to total US ETF count (3,188), and +25 additional issuers by brand.
    • From our 11 asset class categories:
      • Increased Most: Options, 51.2%
        • Second: Managed Futures, 36.8%
      • Decreased Most: Currency, -44.7%
        • Second: Commodities Derivative, -40.1%
      • The two largest asset classes of Equity (76.9% of assets) and Fixed Income (18.7%) surged 16.1% and 14.9% respectively.
    • ETF expense ratio 12-month revenue grew from $10.75 Billion to $12.09 Billion.
    • The revenue from Active ETFs rose from 11.9% to 13.3%.
  • The last 12 months have been filled with growth in the ETF industry. Assets increased nearly $1 Billion (963 Million). One data point to note is that although total funds are up +220, the Open-close ratio dropped from 4.27 to 1.95 due to the increase in closures over 12 months. The last several months of positive asset growth have carried this high performance.
  • The tracked indexes had similar positive experiences in the last 12 months. The Toroso ETF Industry Index was up 11.9% while the S&P Financial Select Sector Index trailed at 6.7%.
