The fastest growing ETF shop of 2016, so far, is Van Eck
]. Yet in absolute terms, the biggest ETF shops are still an order of magnitude ahead of the rest when it comes to growth.
Cinthia Murphy of ETF.com digs
into an updated snapshot of the trade publication's "ETF League Table"
and how it has changed this year. The full table includes AUM figures, as of December 7, for 75 ETF shops, ranging from BlackRock's iShares
] at number one with more than $962 billion to Premise Capital
at number 75 with $2.55 million. Vanguard
] (number two) now has nearly $600 billion in ETF AUM, and State Street
] (number three) now has more than $489 billion in ETF AUM.
Van Eck (which rebranded
its Market Vectors ETF businesses as the Van Eck Vectors ETFs earlier this year) jumped two spots to ninth-biggest ETF shop this year, thanks to a 50-percent (about $11 billion) rise in AUM to about $30 billion. Yet the big AUM winners are still BlackRock, Vanguard, and SSgA, which in 2016 have seen their AUM jump up by $127 billion (15 percent), $112 billion (23 percent), and $68 billion each (16 percent), respectively.
] has also seen a big 2016 ETF AUM jump, of $17.7 billion (a 44-percent increase).
On the flip side, WisdomTree
], and First Trust
] have all taken ETF AUM hits this year.
