ETF Database has allocated each of the U.S.-listed exchange-traded products (ETPs) to one of approximately 70 "best fit" proprietary ETF Database Categories. The mapping between an ETF and an ETF Database Category utilizes a "1:1" methodology; each ETF is assigned to one and only one ETF Database Category. ETF Database’s proprietary method of categorizing ETFs simplifies your ability to browse and find the best ETF for your needs. When a new ETF is launched, ETF Database’s analysts review the fund's stated objective, underlying index and constituent holdings to determine the most appropriate ETF Database Category. The mapping between ETFs and ETF Database Categories is reviewed on a regular basis.
Below, each ETF Database Category is grouped by asset class.
