The Largest ETF’s (Exchange Traded Funds)

Posted By on October 10, 2010

Here are the latest ranking of ETF’s by asset size.  It was no surprise to see State Street Global Advisors’ SPDR S&P 500 (SPY) on top, with $78 billion in assets. It was the second and third spots that is the most titillating.

The World Gold Trust Services’ Gold Trust ETF (GLD) came in second, now worth amazing $54 billion, and BlackRock’s (BLK) iShares MSCI Emerging Market Index Fund ETF (EEM) came in third at $45 billion.

One can’t blame Investors for departing the U.S. en masse and heading to emerging markets.  It’s all about returns, and trading in a projected  2% growth rate at home for a more robost 6%-10% growth rate abroad makes logical sense.
