Data reveals ETF tracking errors


Jean-René Giraud, CEO of TrackInsight reports, on the three-year anniversary of the launch of the ETF analysis firm, that many in the industry believe analysing the performance of trackers vis à vis their benchmark is not of primary importance.

However, its research shows that there can be a significant difference in tracking results between best and worst ETFs. Citing the 17 ETFs that the firm follows who track the S&P 500, the index achieved 33.15 per cent over the last three years, while the best ETF reached 35.20 per cent and the worst, 28.72 per cent.

ETFs tracking the MSCI World totalling 16, saw best performance at 25.36 per cent, worst at 23.71 per cent, against an index return over three years of 24.61 per cent. ETFs in the emerging markets saw underperformance according to TrackInsight. The MSCI Emerging Markets Index achieved 14.97 per cent over the three years while the 16 ETFs which track it achieved a best return of 13.88 per cent and a worst of 12.17 per cent.
