ETF Stats – Food for Thought
newETFs.io‘s goal is to help (but not limited to) investors diversify, find alpha, and help advisors with their fiduciary duty by exposing to them “the other 10%” of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs). This goal is a challenge considering that 90% of ETF assets under management (AUM) are owned by five ETF issuing companies. If you add 15 more ETF issuing companies to the list it will make up 98% of ETF AUM owned by 20 companies; keep in mind there are 123 ETF companies.
Here’s the breakout:
|ETF Tier Category||Aum$||Aum%|
|Top 2||$ 2,564,455,500,000||65%|
|Top 5||$ 3,564,739,690,000||90%|
|Top 10||$ 3,771,919,400,000||95%|
|Top 20||$ 3,889,287,860,000||98%|
|The Rest||$ 75,399,840,000||2%|
Let this data sink in for bit…only $75.4 Billion of the $3.964 Trillion of ETF AUM is managed by “The Rest”. Said differently 20 companies in the US manage $3.889 Trillion!
Depending on what type of person you are reading this post: Individual Investor, Advisor, ETF Issuer, or someone considering making an ETF. I can only presume you all will have a list of different types of questions and/or concerns.
