ETFs have brought in a whopping $305.6 billion
in net inflows year-to-date (as of December 20), and some of that is flowing into brand new ETFs. The top ten new ETFs and ETNs of the year are powered by five firms: Barclays
, J.P. Morgan Asset Management
, John Hancock
, and SSgA
. Two of those launches have brought in more than $3 billion each.

the top 10 (by net inflows) new ETFs and ETNs of 2018. Four of those new products are from JPMAM, two are from SSgA, two are from Barclays, one is from Hancock, and one is from Principal. The trade publication offers insights into why each of the new products found such a following this year: one tracks a freshly broken out sector; five benefited from "BYOA" (bring your own assets); two were custom built for a big advisory shop; and two had very aggressive pricing.
Perhaps most notable, though, is that all ten new products came from, as ETF.com
describes them, "well-established brands."
