List of Small-Cap Growth ETFs Listed on U.S. Exchanges

Growth ETFs are a popular and very straight forward category. The index provider starts with a selection of companies (for examples the companies in the S&P 600) and then uses fundamental criteria to determine what companies they believe will grow at a rate faster than the other comparable companies. The process is common in all of the ETFs but the composition of these ETFs does differ from one another quite a bit usually as a result of the underlying index chosen (Russell 2000, etc.) and the specific fundamentals that they index provider uses in the filtering process.
