The ETF Industry: The Next Five Years Boom   

By Toroso Asset Management

Industry projections by some of the brightest minds in ETFs.

In this special edition of our commentary, we are publishing the thoughts of some of the most prominent figures in the ETF industry about where they think the industry is going. In a nutshell, we discuss their projections of: international growth; thematic investing; institutional adoption; and the lowering of fees in conjunction with consistent margins.

“Over the next five years, we will have at least a doubling of the industry,” says Burton Malkiel, Professor Emeritus a member of the TETF Index investment committee and a recognized trail blazer of the ETF Industry.

“There was a lot of hype over digital asset management or robo-advisors. A lot of that hype has been deflated. We’re now starting to build a strong base, and younger investors will soon manage their money through ETFs,” comments Kris Monaco, Co-Founder of Level ETF Ventures.

“I’m not surprised by the growth in international funds, but it is amazing that none have grown faster than those in the U.S. I think that we’re at a tipping point where growth will potentially soar outside the U.S.” Linda H Zhangco, Founder Purview Investments
