Jan.02 — Thematic ETFs, which focus on industries like robotics, blockchain or cannabis, closed 2019 with about $51 billion under management, just 1% more than the previous high point for assets reached 15 months earlier, according to data compiled by Bloomberg Intelligence. By contrast, the overall U.S. ETF industry has grown 20% during the same period and now oversees $4.4 trillion. Bloomberg’s Ritika Gupta has more on “Bloomberg Markets: The Close.”
