Assets of emerging markets ETFs and ETPs reach USD193.5bn


At the end of August 2010 there were 450 exchange-traded funds and exchange-traded products providing exposure to various emerging markets indices with 869 listings, assets of USD193.5bn from 94 providers on 38 exchanges in 32 countries, according to a report by BlackRock.

Year-to-date, ETFs/ETPs providing exposure to emerging and frontier market indices have seen net inflows of USD30.5bn, with USD27.9bn of net new assets going into emerging and frontier market equity ETFs/ETPs.

Of this amount, USD18.7bn went into broad emerging market equity ETFs/ETPs and USD5.7bn into ETFs/ETPs tracking Chinese equity indices.

In comparison, for the full year 2009, ETFs/ETPs providing exposure to emerging and frontier markets had net inflows of USD24.8bn, with USD23.2bn going into ETFs/ETPs tracking emerging and frontier equity indices, of which USD9.6bn went into ETFs/ETPs tracking broad emerging/frontier market equity indices and USD6.5bn into ETFs/ETPs tracking Chinese equity indices.

The array of ETFs/ETPs now available to track emerging markets benchmarks has grown significantly, such that an investor can now access every MSCI emerging market country except the Czech Republic and Morocco.

BlackRock says emerging markets has been one of the markets where it has seen innovation in ETF/ETP structures such as allowing for exposure to India and China A share indices.

“We expect to see continued growth in the use of these products, as well as emerging market and frontier market exposures availability,” it says.
