Fund Liquidations Double

News summary by MFWire's editors

Fund liquidations are on the rise this year, while launches are down.

Investor's Business Daily reports that, per Morningstar Direct data, as of November 19, 2,063 mutual funds have shut down year-to-date in 2020. That's more than double the 846 funds that shut down in all of 2019, and of course 2020 isn't over yet.

The spike hit ETFs, too. IBD notes that, per ETF.com data, as of October 31, 226 ETFs have shut down YTD in 2020. That's up from 126 in all of 2019 and 156 in all of 2018.

New product launches have slowed, too, at least in traditional mutual funds; only 32 mutual funds have launched YTD. (It's less clear on the ETF side, though. 255 ETFs launched in 2019, and 269 in 2018. In 2020, 234 have launched so far, but of course the year isn't over yet.)
