On an episode of the ETF Prime podcast posted in the week ending July 30, host Nate Geraci is joined with ETF Trends and ETF Database’s Tom Hendrickson to feature the top 10 ETFs with year-over-year growth on their respective platforms. Nate Geraci and Tom Hendrickson are also joined by Frank Holmes, CEO of U.S. Global Investors, with discussion surrounding the state of the global airline industry and the only pure-play airline ETF, the U.S. Global Jets ETF (JETS).
The conversation starts with Hendrickson’s report on the top 10 ETFs with the biggest gains in traffic year-over-year. This list offers useful insight into where advisors seem to be concentrating most of their research efforts and how that has changed over the past year.
As Hendrickson states in the episode, “Advisors are making sure they understand the space.”
Later in the podcast, Holmes explains why some media channels profiled JETS as “the ETF story of the year.” He discusses how assets had grown from $35 million in March of 2020 to $3 billion by December of 2020. As of the first half of this year, JETS has crossed $4.5 billion in assets under management (AUM). JETS track record has largely been reflective of the investments of retail investors coupled with influences from trends happening within the airline industry.
