ETF Trends

As the exchange traded fund (ETF) industry grows, it’s only going to intensify the competition for new entrants. Despite that, three providers in particular have already managed to get off to a solid start.

The ETF industry is a tough one to break into, yet three relative newcomers to the space have set up shop and by all appearances, they’ve gained a solid foothold.

Ian Salisbury for The Wall Street Journal reports that PIMCO, Charles Schwab, and ETF Securities are among those newer entrants who have managed to achieve success to a degree this past year and have promising futures in the ETF industry.

It’s not small feat. The industry’s three largest providers – BlackRock, State Street and Vanguard – have historically given some tough competition.

ETF Securities leads the way among new entrants, amassing $1.5 billion in four physically-backed metals funds. ETFS already had a big commodity ETF presence outside the United States, and stayed within its niche with its gold, silver, platinum and palladium ETFs. [ETF Securities Takes ETF Industry By Storm.]
