ETF Issuer League Table
The ETF industry moves fast. Each week, we run the numbers and tally up the winners and losers in terms of fund flows and total assets.
This week’s big winner was iShares with over $5.6 billion in new assets. The iShares Core S&P 500 ETF (IVV ) brought in over $1 billion alone, with the iShares Russell 2000 ETF (IWM ) not far behind at $988 million. On the other end of the spectrum, Vanguard took a beating to the tune of $2.5 billion. The majority of losses came from the Vanguard S&P 500 ETF (VOO ), which saw $6.3 billion outflows over the past week, but was balanced out by small but consistent flows into the firm’s other funds.
On the small side we saw Armor Index’s single fund, the Armor US Equity Index ETF (ARMR ), bring in $1.6 million new assets, which accounted for almost 33.5% of the firm’s total assets. Conversely, the Day Hagan Funds’ single ETF, the Day Hagan/Ned Davis Research Smart Sector ETF (SSUS ), had losses of $41 million, accounting for 31.3% of the firm’s assets.
