Under the Commodity asset class, turnover on Gold ETPs totaled USD316m, 281.6% up from last year’s weekly average.
In the middle of declining markets, Asia-Pacific ETP AUM was reduced by USD1.1bn or 1.2% on a week-over week basis and ended at USD88.8bn last week. However, on a year to date basis, Asia-Pacific ETF assets are still USD4.6bn or 5.4% above last year’s closing.
