Confirming IHF’s strength this year is this anecdote: Nine of the ETF’s top-10 holdings have traded higher year-to-date and seven of those nine stocks have posted double-digit gains.

Investors like the IHF story. A year ago, IHF had about $400 million in assets under management. Today, that figure is closer to $700 million.
