Strong ETP flows seen in early 2011


ETPs had a fantastic year in 2010 cashing in a USD115bn across-the-board inflow, topped with a year-ending of around USD1 trillion in AUM. In the same line, without a sign of slowing down, the ETP industry opened the year at full speed with 19 new product launches, strong asset inflows of USD11bn YTD, and a great outlook for its main asset class: US Equities.


Total US ETP flows for the last week registered USD2.7bn of outflows vs USD2.1bn inflows the previous week, setting the YTD weekly flows average at +USD2.8bn. US ETPs AUM keep establishing a threshold above the trillion dollar with USD1.01 trillion so far.

Equity ETPs, driven by US equities reallocation, gathered USD10.7bn since the beginning of the year, coming out of the January outflow pattern we have seen since 2007. Emerging Markets ETPs flows, the big equity story of 2010, stands shamefully at a USD2.4bn outflow. While throughout 2010, Broad EM ETPs sheltered the bulk of the new assets, we have seen investors favouring country EM ETPs during 2011 instead. In addition, Fixed Income ETPs have cashed in a surprising USD3.1bn of new flows YTD (Corporates,+USD2.0bn; Sovereign, +USD943 mm). Finally, Gold ETPs have experienced their largest outflow (-USR2.7bn), during the same 4-week period.
