The Biggest New ETF Launches of 2017

Written by David Fabian, December 12th, 2017

2017 will easily go down as one of the sturdiest on record for exchange-traded funds. Not only were a multitude of new and exciting funds launched, but fresh heights were achieved in global fund flows to these diversified investment vehicles. Through the first eleven months of the year, ETFs have amassed over $400 billion of new assets and have yet to show any signs of slowing down.

Much of this capital has been driven by the obvious benefits that ETFs offer over comparable alternatives. They serve as a way to access markets without the high fees of mutual funds or the business risk of individual stocks.

They are easy to own, easy to understand, and give investors a tremendous leg up on reaching their long-term goals.

Reviewing The Hottest New ETFs of 2015

Written by David Fabian, December 01st, 2015

2015 has been an outstanding year for growth in the ETF industry if you measure success by the number of new funds that were created. Over 260 exchange-traded products have debuted so far this year, and with a full month still to go, that number is expected to increase even further.
