Pacer ETFs Rings in its 9th Anniversary as Firm nears $50 Billion in Assets Under Management

The firm celebrates another year of success, with an 81% growth rate since its 8th birthday, bringing total AUM to over $43 billion, continues to earn notable industry recognition

Pacer ETFs (“Pacer”), the leading U.S. issuer in free cash flow ETFs*, proudly celebrates its ninth anniversary. Commemorating this milestone, the firm reflects on the notable growth, recognition, and investor support that has fueled nearly a decade of growth.

Pacer has seen remarkable growth, increasing its assets under management from $24 billion on June 7, 2023 to an impressive $43 billion today, an 81% growth rate. Pacer has continued this momentum into 2024, entering the year with $35 billion in AUM, now sitting at $43B a 29% uptick in asset growth year-to-date.

A substantial portion of this success can be attributed to the rapid growth of the firm's Cash Cows ETFTM series, which has amassed $36 billion in assets across 10 funds. Earlier this year, Pacer introduced three Cash Cows UCITS ETFs to European markets, their first international push, providing overseas investors an opportunity to tap into the unique free-cash-flow-driven strategy these funds deploy.

This growth underscores Pacer’s commitment and success in delivering differentiated, rules-based strategies that may complement any investment portfolio. Beyond the Cash Cows series, Pacer continues to see asset gathering across its fund families including the Pacer Trendpilot® Series and the Pacer Swan SOS ETF Series, along with funds like the Pacer Data and Digital Revolution ETF (TRFK) and the Pacer Metaurus US Large Cap Dividend Multiplier 400 ETF (QDPL).

"The growth and success of our fund offerings demonstrates the resilience of a free cash flow approach amid challenging market conditions,” says Sean O’Hara, President of Pacer ETF Distributors. “We’re proud to act as growing leaders in the industry to deliver these strategy-driven solutions and better serve the portfolio goals of our investors.”

The industry has taken note of the success of Pacer’s strategies, with CALF earning the prestigious “ETF of the Year” at the 2024 Awards.1 Pacer has also been recognized for its excellence and contributions to the industry with nominations in four categories for the upcoming 2024 With Intelligence Mutual Fund & ETF Awards, including ETF Provider of the Year, Sales Success of the Year, ETF Suite of the Year, and Thematic ETF of the Year.2

In addition to the success of its funds, the firm has expanded to over 155 employees, boasting a talented team that enables Pacer to better serve its growing client base, ensuring that financial advisors and investors receive the highest level of support and expertise. Pacer was also named a Top Workplace Winner3 by The Philadelphia Inquirer, reflecting its positive and dynamic work environment.

“We’re honored to celebrate our ninth anniversary and the milestones we’ve earned thus far, made possible by the hard work and dedication of our incredible team and the unwavering support of our partners and investors," says Joe Thomson, President of Pacer ETFs. "We are grateful for the trust and confidence placed in us, as we continue to provide innovative investment solutions to help investors reach their goals.”

Year to date, Pacer has launched 4 new funds, bringing its total offerings to 47 ETFs. Looking ahead, Pacer seeks to maintain its momentum with the development of its product offerings and the upcoming expansion of its Dividend Multiplier Series and the Cash Cows Growth Series later this year among other growth initiatives.
