ETF performance in perspective
In the table below, Bespoke Investment Group highlights the performance of key ETFs across all asset classes over the last week, month and quarter to date.
The important observations are:
1. Equities have painted the globe red over all three measurement periods, while the only asset classes that have gained have been precious metals and fixed income.
2. France, Germany and Italy have seen the biggest declines by far. Just over the last week, the ETFs that track these three markets (EWQ, EWG, EWI) were all down more than 15%!
3. Gold probably comes to mind immediately when thinking about the top performing asset class this quarter, and while it is up 20.38%, the 20-Year+ Treasury ETF (TLT) is actually up even more at 20.99%! “Pretty amazing,” remarked Bespoke.
