$10T to $12T Within Five Years?
The world ETF market will double (or more) to between $10 trillion and $12 trillion within five years, according to Martin Small, head of U.S. and Canada iShares [profile] at BlackRock.
In the U.S., iShares already has 343 ETFs with $1.4 trillion (800 ETFs and more than $1.8 trillion worldwide), yet Small still sees lots of product development opportunities (though he draws the line at bitcoin ETFs, at least for now).
"We've only scratched the surface for markets we want to tackle," Small tells IBD. "Any facet of the investment universe where we see good economic rationale — and where existing investment options limit investor progress — we'll continue to push into those areas by offering ETF solutions."
Small predicts a continued increase in the "use of ETFs as building blocks in asset allocation and factor-based investment strategies", and he sees "great opportunities for ETFs in both smart beta and ESG."
