Big earnings and receding U.S. election uncertainty drive IPOX Indexes to massive gains. IPOX ETFs hit fresh all-time Highs. In what we interpret as one of the most powerful up moves in its history, the IPOX Indexes soared during U.S. presidential election week, even outperforming the surging benchmarks.

Outperformance was driven by explosive gains in IPOX portfolio holdings generally untracked in the benchmarks. In the U.S., e.g., the broad-based, FANG-free IPOX 100 U.S., underlying for the $1.7 billion “FPX” ETF, added +12.93% to +34.33% YTD, propelling the index to the top of the weekly U.S. equity indexes performance rankings.
