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

“The year also saw a handful of new ETFs achieve blockbuster status.”


Recapping a Record Year for ETFs by Todd Rosenbluth

“Investors’ comfort with ETFs for strategic and tactical purposes continued to climb during 2021, pushing flows to record levels.”


2021 was Great for ETFs by Michael Venuto

Should I launch an Active ETF or an Index ETF? by Pat Cleary

“Unfortunately, the definition of active and passive differ depending on your audience. Finance folks think about this differently than lawyer folks.”


Caitlin Cook: What to Know About Bitcoin Futures ETFs in 2022 by Lara Crigger

“I do think that there’s a place for an ETF, just to give more people access. For financial advisors right now, the regulatory environment isn’t clear to them.”


ETF Tweet of the Week:  An excellent 2021 ETF wrap-up from Morningstar’s Ben Johnson (click tweet to read thread)…


ETF Chart of the Week:  One of my 2022 ETF predictions is a massive independent ETF issuer boom.  The below chart should offer hope to new entrants.  Issuers outside of the “Big Three” accounted for approximately 30% of 2021 inflows, worth $280 billion.  For context, total industry inflows in 2019 were $326 billion!  The ETF space is no doubt top-heavy.  However, increasing investor demand for the ETF wrapper is creating plenty of opportunities for the “rest of the industry”.
