My favorite ETF reads over the past week, along with my ETF tweet and chart of the week!


The Best of 2020 & What’s Next for ETFs by Dave Nadig

“You don’t need an ETF nerd to point out it was a monumental year for the structure.”


The Flows by Michael Batnick

“Maturation, new players, BYOA, and gamblers were the big themes in 2020.”


Breaking Down the Record Year in ETFs by Todd Rosenbluth

“ETF demand was broad based in 2020, as fixed income and commodity ETFs pulled in impressive net inflows relative to their size.”


ETFs’ Big Three Struggle to Make Mark in 2020’s Largest Launches by Claire Ballentine

“The top 20 ETFs to debut in 2020 by total fund assets include only three products from BlackRock Inc. and none from Vanguard Group or State Street Corp.”


What’s Behind ETF Issuer Growth Gap by Cinthia Murphy

“In 2020, smaller issuers managed to slightly chip away at the Big 3 more so than in any other year.”


Direct indexing allows investors to pick and mix by Billy Nauman

“The costs of the new products will be critical to how widely they are adopted. Current offerings are not as cheap as basic, vanilla ETFs that track a major index like the S&P 500.”
