Last week, Asia-Pacific ETP AUM reached USD99.4bn after an increase of 1.7% over the previous week, according to figures released by Deutsche Bank. On a year to date basis, Asia-Pacific ETP market is up by USD7.9bn or 8.6% above last year’s closing.

Under the Commodity asset class, turnover in Gold ETPs totalled USD173m for the last week.
