Are ETFs Victimized By their Own Success?

by: Armie Margaret Lee

Last year, it seemed as though a new ETF was coming to market every other minute. But the heady days of 2007 aren't spilling over to 2008.

Citing numbers from Morningstar, Anand wrote that the number of ETFs entering the market dropped 70 percent to 27 in the first quarter versus 94 in the first three months of last year. "The appetite for new products isn't what it used to be," Dan Dolan, a product manager at the Select Sector SPDRs, told Anand. Another factor behind the drop in the number of new ETFs is capital shortage.
