The Invesco QQQ Trust kicked off in March 1999 – seemingly unfortunate timing for its first few years, given the dot-com bubble bust that happened shortly thereafter. But long-term investors aren’t complaining … and neither is Invesco, which has watched assets blossom, especially over the past few years.
“At the end of the third quarter of 2010, QQQ had $22 billion in assets according to CFRA’s First Bridge ETF database,” writes Todd Rosenbluth, head of ETF & Mutual Fund Research at CFRA. “The fund grew to $38 billion three years later, but was still at the same mark at the end of the third quarter of 2016 before taking off. By the end of September 2018, QQQ assets doubled to $74 billion and as of early September 2020, the fund’s asset base exceeded $140 billion before closing the quarter with $137 billion. “As of July 9, the fund remained a $174 billion juggernaut.”
