ETF Statistics For June 2012: Actively Managed Assets Less Than 1%

July 10th, 2012

Ron Rowland: The ETF count for June stands at 1,476, consisting of 1,259 ETFs and 217 ETNs. Eleven new product introductions during the month brought the launch count to 124 for the first half of 2012.

Assets under management climbed to $1.18 trillion. The 3.9% monthly increase closely matches the performance of U.S. equity markets in June. Products with asset levels in excess of $10 billion now total 23 while 157 ETPs have passed the $1 billion mark.

Two of June’s new ETFs are actively managed funds, pushing their quantity to 51 and passing the 50-fund milestone. Assets in actively managed ETFs climbed to about $7.2 billion. At this time, actively managed ETFs represent only 3.4% of ETP quantity and 0.6% of ETP assets. Meanwhile, they appear to be grabbing a much larger share of media attention.
