Not every fund can be successful out of the gates—as the recent and increasing number of ETF closures displays—but there are still a handful of products that have flourished since their inception earlier in the year and may continue to do so, according to an article on Benzinga.

The article sought to highlight products apart from the highly impressive Pimco Total Return ETF (NYSEArca: BOND), which has gathered more than $2.7 billion since its rollout on March 1 of this year. Some of those funds include:

  • iShares MSCI Global Select Metals & Mining Producers Fund (NYSEArca: PICK)
  • Market Vectors Preferred Securities ex-Financials ETF (NYSEArca: PFXF)
  • iShares MSCI Frontier 100 Index Fund (NYSEArca: FM)
  • SPDR Barclays Capital Short High Yield Bond ETF (NYSEArca: SJNK)
