Which ETFs Flew Off the Shelves Fastest in Their Day?

News summary by MFWire's editors

There have been about 100 new ETFs this year, but most have yet to crack $100 million in AUM. The big winner so far in attracting investors has been Pimco's [profile] Total Return ETF -- but what were the winners in years past? Yesterday, in a post entitled "The Most Successful ETFs of All Time," Seeking Alpha looked at the new ETFs that have had the most successful debuts.

PowerShares's [profile] S&P Low Volatility ETF was the most popular ETF introduced in 2011, while 2010 belonged to Vanguard's [profile] S&P 500 ETF. Seeking Alpha's walk down memory lane goes all the way back to 1993 and the debut of State Street's [profile] SPDR S&P 500, still one of the most-traded ETFs.

The post includes a chart showing the number of new ETFs and the total AUM they've attracted year by year. So far, 2011 was the biggest year for new ETFs, with over 300 introduced, while ETFs launched in 2007 attracted the highest total AUM, about $170 billion.
