Insurance
While the insurance industry usualy shows reliable performance,  the track record of the 3 ETFs in our theme reflects the dismal, disaster prone year 2017.
Along with 2 Financials ETFs, exposed to the insurance and real estate sectors – respectively 14% and 18% for and 23% and 17% for – the group performance has been middling but volatility remains markedly low

Financial Services

The performance of the ETFs with exposure to Financial Services and Supporting Activities puts the funds at the top of the Financial ETF category, but their coverage of banks, consumer lending, investment management companies and fund sponsors is far from uniform
Details in our note below on the SPDR S&P Capital Markets ETF , iShares U.S. Financial Services ETF , iShares U.S. Broker-Dealers & Securities Exchanges ETF and Exchange Traded Concepts
