Assets under management in pan-European exchange-traded funds rose 12.02 per cent to EUR123.65bn between 31 March and 30 June 2009, according to research by Lipper.

The average monthly turnover Q2 was up 34.69 per cent-from EUR22.14bn in Q2 2008 to EUR29.82bn in Q2 2009.

The positive stock market environment was reflected in the performance tables, where only one equity fund had a negative performance for Q2 2009.

Within the bond segment, funds denominated in US dollars and long-dated funds showed negative returns. Funds denominated in British pounds, as well as corporate bond funds and emerging market bond funds, showed the highest returns for Q2 2009.
 
Most of the best performing funds had their investment focus in emerging markets, such as India and Turkey.

None of the 13 equity-linked real estate ETFs analysed showed negative performance for second quarter 2009.

At the same time, around one quarter (23) of the 97 bond funds analysed in the reporting period showed negative performance. Currency movements and inflation expectations were the main performance drivers in the bond segment.

Lipper says the variety of ETFs is still rising with 53 products launched during second quarter of 2009.
