Week of November 14, 2022 KPI Summary
- It’s Thanksgiving week, and in the ETF space, there’s a lot to be thankful for this year. Let’s take stock of where our industry sits today.
- This week, the ETF market welcomed 14 new ETF launches, and saw 1 single ETF close, keeping the open-to-close ratio at just under 3 for the week – roughly for every 3 ETFs that come to market, 1 fund closes.
- That’s a healthy pace of product launches and speaks to a maturing industry that’s continuously innovating in both market access and fees.
- The number of ETFs available to investors continues to grow, up 9.6% in the past 12 months, and net asset flows remain strongly positive this year.
- Asset growth, however, has been difficult in a challenging market environment for most asset classes. Despite net inflows, year-to-date, total U.S.-listed ETF assets are down 8.3% due to market action.
- Active managers are especially thankful this year. About 64% of all ETF launches in the past 12 months are actively managed ETFs, which now account for about 12% of the industry’s revenues.
- Sentiment towards active management and appetite for these strategies has been growing strong in an industry that has been predominantly passive since inception.
- The Toroso ETF Industry Index (TETF), our proprietary index of 20 names capturing the ETF ecosystem, was down 2.8% in the past week, lagging the S&P Financial Select Sector Index, which was down 1.5% in the same period.
- However, since inception in 2017, this benchmark of the ETF industry has outperformed XLF by roughly 4 percentage points, suggesting the ETF space has been a healthy, vital part of financial services.
