Another two years, another $1 trillion in AUM.
The U.S. ETF industry crossed the $4-trillion-AUM line last Friday, July 5, reports Todd Rosenbluth
, head of ETF and mutual fund research at CFRA
, citing ETF.com
data. The milestone comes 26 and a half years after the launch of the U.S. industry's first (and biggest and most liquid) ETF, SPY ($272 billion and counting), and just two years after the industry crossed the $3-trillion-AUM line.
Of the $4.02 trillion now held in U.S-domiciled ETFs, 57 percent of that AUM is in U.S. equity ETFs, while 19 percent is in fixed income ETFs.
Worldwide ETF AUM reached $5.32 trillion at the end of May, according to ETFGI data
, so U.S.-domiciled ETFs hold about 76 percent of industry AUM.
