Ryan Fitzgerald

  • This week, the industry experienced 5 ETF launches and 11 closures, shifting the 1-year Open-to-Close ratio to 1.99 and total US ETFs to 3,407.
  • Happy National “Set a Good Example Day!” We’re sure you knew and are celebrating appropriately. However, if we are the first to tell you – yes, February 26 is this unique “holiday.” To commemorate the day, let’s take a look at the ETFs that have ESG as their General Attribute (according to the Tidal ETF Classification tool).
    • There are currently 118 ESG ETFs totaling $81.4 Billion.
      • iShares ESG Aware MSCI USA ETF (ESGU) has the most AUM with $13.5 Billion, with Vanguard’s ESGV and iShares’ ESGD next in line at $8.1B and $7.9B respectively.
      • The top 10 ETFs in AUM constitute $52.4B of the $81.4B total (63%).
    • The top performers:
      • YTD: 11.5% for NWLG, Nuveen Winslow Large-Cap Growth ESG ETF.
        • The group’s average is 2.4% compared to the ETF industry’s 30.2% change YTD.
      • 1-year: 49.8% for QQMG, Invesco ESG NASDAQ 100 ETF.
        • NWLG is in second place with 49.2%.
        • The group’s average is 15.0% 1-year.
        • Only 4 of the 109 ETFs that have 1-year performance available are negative.
    • There are 36 Issuers maintaining the 118 ESG ETFs, with iShares having the most funds with 26.
    • The average expense (bps) is 33.3 compared to the industry’s 52.9 bps.
  • ESG ETFs aim to set a good example to the industry and investors alike. Regardless of your feelings on this group and its impact in reality, we should all want to set a good example today and every day (but today especially)!
  • The tracked indexes experienced similar performance last week. The Toroso ETF Industry Index was up 1.95% while the S&P Financial Select Sector Index trailed at 1.61%.
