Huge Growth Expected

The global luxury market size is expected to grow roughly 50% between 2022 and 2030, according to Bain & Co. This will result in a total market size of more than $600 billion. And Generations Y, Z, and Alpha will be the biggest drivers of this growth. Their spending is set to grow three times faster than other generations.

Companies like LVMH and Hermes have benefited from strong pricing power and high margins driving significant free cash flow generation. Historically, luxury stock fundamentals have translated into long term price performance. The fund’s index has generated an annualized total return of 11.8% since its launch in 2011.

“Overall consumer spending remains resilient, but there are signs that consumers are starting to cut back on discretionary purchases,” said VettaFi’s associate director of research Roxanna Islam. “Luxury goods, however, are less sensitive to economic cycles and tend to hold demand even in times of lower consumer spending.”

  • Hermes International (8.2% weight)
  • LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton SE (7.9%)
  • Cie Financiere Richemont SA (7.6%)
