Feb 04, 2020 (NetworkNewsWire via COMTEX) -- A recent Visual Capitalist publication titled "Visualizing the Expanse of the ETF Universe" by Jeff Desjardins discusses exchange-traded funds ("ETFs"), an innovative new financial technology that emerged out of the early 1990's index investing phenomenon. The article shares a macro breakdown of "galaxies" and a visualization of the wide scope of assets covered by the EFT universe. The data visualization came to Visual Capitalist from iShares by BlackRock, which is well known for iShares Core S&P 500 ETF /zigman2/quotes/204263249/composite IVV +0.48% , iShares Core U.S. Aggregate Bond ETF /zigman2/quotes/200660887/composite AGG +0.10% and other large funds. The article reads, "While the sheer scale of the ETF universe is captivating, it's the variety that shows you how ubiquitous the instrument has become. Today, there are over 8,000 ETFs globally, covering nearly every asset class imaginable."
