European commodity ETP AuM surpases fixed income for first time


Assets under management in commodity exchange traded products in Europe last week reached EUR42.8 billion,  surpassing those in fixed income for the first time, according to a new ETF Market Statistics report from Lyxor ETFs.

The increase has been driven by rising precious metal prices and commodity ETPs in Europe now account for 17.6% of total AUM. AUM in European ETPs have also reached a record EUR243bn.

According to the report, weekly on-exchange ETP turnover fell from the high levels seen the previous week to €14bn – a fall of 56%, while underlying equity market activity (measured by the STOXX Europe 600 Index turnover) fell by almost 49% on the previous week at €120bn. Reported on exchange ETP trading, meanwhile, was 11.70% of equivalent equity market activity.

Lyxor market share rose slightly at 24.21%, second below the combined iShares market share which fell from 29.4% to 28.09%.

Deutsche Boerse continued to have the highest market share on both a 5 and 20 day basis with 20 day market share of 34.62%

The LSE had the next highest market share on a 5 day basis at 18% followed by Euronext with 17.4%. On a 20 day basis Euronext is second with market share of 19.6%.
