S&P DJI reports over $1tn in ETP assets linked to its indices

Over $1 trillion in exchange-traded product assets globally are linked to indices managed by S&P Dow Jones Indices, according to the firm’s annual survey of assets as of 31 December 2016.

The total of $1.041tn linked to the firm’s index suite represented 29.3% of the total global ETP industry assets ($3.546tn) according to ETF industry consultant ETFGI (See: Global ETF assets reach new record high at end of 2016).

Over half of this amount ($567.4 billion) was in ETP assets linked to S&P DJI’s headline equity indices with $460.9bn indexed to the US bellwether S&P 500 Index.

Three of the five largest ETFs in the world track the S&P 500 Index, including the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY), with $238.9bn; the iShares Core S&P 500 ETF (IVV), with $116.2bn; and the Vanguard S&P 500 ETF (VOO), with $70.4bn (Data as of 3 July 2017).

Other indices within the firm’s headline equity line-up, along with the amount of ETP assets tracking them as of the end of 2016, include the S&P MidCap 400 ($55.5bn), the S&P SmallCap 600 ($30.0bn), the Dow Jones Industrial Average ($16.4bn) and the Completion/Total Market Index ($4.5bn).

Across all other S&P Dow Jones indices, the categories with the largest amount of ETP assets are smart beta indices ($165.6bn), sector/industry indices ($120.0bn), other US indices ($64.4bn), global indices ($51.8bn), fixed income indices ($39.8bn) and real estate indices ($24.7bn).
