Market insights and analysis


Updates on how dynamic, risk-managed investment solutions are performing in the current market environment.

In June, 82 exchange-traded products (“ETPs”) were added to the ETF Deathwatch list and 26 were removed, bringing the total to 477.

Twenty-one products were removed from the list last month due to improved health, and five were delisted.

Eighty products were added to the list due to low trading volume. The low volume in these products could be due to the nature of their investment product. The other two additions were due to low assets under management (“AUM”). These ETPs may have enough AUM to keep them from closure. However, our system takes into account both AUM and volume. If both remain low, these funds may be considered for closure.

Forty-three ETPs on Deathwatch this month have been in the market for at least 10 years, including many short ETPs.

The average asset level of the threatened ETPs on ETF Deathwatch increased from $8.98 million to $9.22 million, and 42 products had less than $2 million in assets. The average age of products on the list increased from 40.71 months to 40.96 months. The number of products at least 5 years of age increased from 92 to 105. The largest ETP on the list had an AUM of $24.99 million, while the smallest had assets of just $110,300.
