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
