Are you a nerd for exchange traded fund (ETF) data?

So far this year, the ETF industry’s assets are down, dropping from a peak of $625 billion to around $560 billion. The fall is mostly because of cold feet and people dropping out of the market while they ride out the storm.

The exception to this is ProShares, which is continuing its strong performance. Nonetheless, this industry is taking off fast as a whole and has not cooled off, it’s simply taking a breather.

Matt Hougan for Index Universe compiled the table below for data lovers and Jim Wiandt for Index Universe shares it with us. It’s a nice snapshot of all the industry players and where they stand.
