Ryan Fitzgerald

  • This week, the industry experienced 5 ETF launches and 0 closures, shifting the 1-year Open-to-Close ratio to 2.79 and total US ETFs to 3,560.
  • It’s the last week of June, schools are out, and Summer has begun! Many Americans will take a vacation during the summer months, so let’s take a look at the 5 non-leverage Travel and Leisure ETFs.
    • The category has $385 Million across the 5 funds, with a large majority ($260 Million) in Invesco’s PEJ which was launched in 2005. The remaining 4 funds (AWAY, BEDZ, CRUZ, JRNY) are all from different Issuers and have been launched in the last 5 years.
      • Last year at this time, the category constituted $571 Billion with PEJ managing $400 Million. In June 2022, the category totaled $1.39 Billion.
    • Although the category is down 33%, the average revenue is up 1.6% YTD. PEJ leads the pack at 6.7% total revenue YTD.
    • The average expense ratio of the category shifted from 67.8 bps to 68.6 bps in one year.
    • All 5 of these ETFs are traded on the NYSE.
  • As COVID restrictions and fear have all but disappeared in the last two years, the Travel and Leisure ETF category has plummeted 72% in revenues, a surprising dichotomy. Let us know what other sectors have seen this kind of drawback post-COVID.
  • The tracked indexes had very similar experiences over the last week. Toroso ETF Industry Index was up 1.56% while the S&P Financial Select Sector Index led at 1.70%.
