Pan-European ETF AUM rises by 19.23 per cent in Q3


Assets under management in the pan-European exchange-traded fund segment gained 19.23 per cent to EUR147.08bn from 30 June to 30 September 2009, according to a study by Lipper.

The average monthly turnover was up 5.37 per cent in Q3—from EUR27.83bn in the third quarter of 2008 to EUR29.32bn in Q3 2009.

The positive environment for stocks showed in the performance tables, where only nine equity funds had negative performance for Q3 2009.

Within the bond segment, funds denominated in US dollars and British pounds showed negative returns, while funds investing in corporate bonds and emerging market bonds showed the highest returns for Q3 2009.

As in the bond sector, the performance of money market funds was driven by developments of foreign currencies against the euro.

Within the commodities segment, silver and palladium delivered the best performance for Q3 2009.
Equity sector financials was the best performing equity sector for Q3 2009. Only five of the 583 equity ETFs analysed over the reporting period showed negative performance for third quarter 2009. Most of the best performing funds had their investment focus in the finance sector.

Currency movements and expectations on inflation were, in combination with decreasing spreads, the main performance drivers in the bond segment. Only 14 of the 97 bond funds analysed in the reporting period showed negative performance.

The variety of ETFs is still rising, with 80 ETFs launched during Q3 2009.
