Complete List of New ETFs for 2009

January 7, 2010 by  
Filed under Commentary, ETF IPOs (New ETFs), ETFs

As mentioned in the latest ETF statistics report, 136 new US-listed exchange-traded products launched in 2009: 127 ETFs and nine ETNs.  The 56 closures produced a net increase of 80 for the year.

The table below lists all 136 sorted by the first day the product was listed and available for purchase.  The first trade may be a later date in some cases as a few products do not have any first-day volume.  Also, the so-called “inception date” for many ETFs is typically recorded as being a day or two before it actually becomes listed and available for purchase.

I assign each new product to one of six categories listed below.  The sector classification includes domestic and international sector funds.  Therefore, the new China sector ETFs are classified as sectors, not as international ETFs.  All leveraged and inverse funds go into a separate category, independent of whether they invest in equities, bonds, or commodities.  The commodity category includes only pure commodity funds, not equity funds of commodity producers, which are classified as sector funds.  Lastly, there are always a few products which are hard to pigeon-hole.  I ended up placing the VIX products in the commodity group and most of the hedge-fund replication products in the style category.

The number of new products in each category is as follows:

  • 22 Sector
  • 16 International
  • 28 Style (and Strategy)
  • 30 Bond
  • 33 Leveraged and Inverse
  • 6 Commodity
  • 1 Currency

    Thank you Ron!

  2. Mike Fitzgerald on January 14th, 2010 4:22 pm

    Thankyou Ron, and your column is the best. Also could you do a piece on
    “rare earth metal ETF’s and “technical metal ETF’s?

  3. john on January 14th, 2010 6:51 pm

    When you say old ETFs were “liquidated” – does this mean that investors with money in those lost it? If so this would appear to be a statistically significant risk investing in ETFs.

  4. Ron Rowland on January 15th, 2010 9:23 am

    John, the ETFs liquidation process typically involves investors receiving the NAV (net asset value) on the last day of trading or other specified date in the closing announcement. Whether or not investors lose money depends on the price they paid versus the liquidation value.

    In theory, the only losses are market losses. In practice it can be more. In the recent MacroShares liquidation, they charged shareholders about 3% in liquidation fees. See my article here:
    http://investwithanedge.com/totally-obscene-umm-dmm-expense-ratio

    For most shareholders it is best to sell your shares on the open market prior to the liquidation.

  5. Ron Rowland on January 15th, 2010 9:32 am

    MIke, I am planning to write about ‘rare earths’ soon. I’m not familiar with the term ‘technical metal’ as used in investing, so I ‘m not sure what you are refering to.

  6. steve osborn on January 18th, 2010 10:12 am

    I’VE HEARD THERE ARE TAX COMPLICATIONS INVOLVED IN ETF INVESTING.THESE CAN OCCUR WHETHER OR NOT YOU SOLD ANY SHARES IN THE TAX YEAR.
