Fixed income ETPs attract record USD11bn net flows in May


Economic uncertainty in Europe and China sparked a flight to safety that yielded a record setting month for fixed income ETPs, with the products attracting USD11.0 billion in net flows, compared with USD9.1billion for the previous record month, January 2012, according to BlackRock’s latest ETP Landscape Report.

Government bond ETPs attracted record breaking inflows of USD5.6 billion driven by flows of USD4.4bn into US Treasury bond products.  The previous monthly high for government ETPs of USD3.6 billion was set in June 2010.
Broad/aggregate and investment grade corporate bond products attracted USD1.6 billion and USD1.7 billion respectively.
High yield bond ETPs saw monthly outflows of (USD1.3) billion, the first month of redemptions since November, 2011.
Emerging markets equity ETPs drew USD3.3 billion, with flows of USD8.3 billion into two new Chinese equity funds outweighing outflows of USD5 billion from a broad range of other emerging markets products. The two new Chinese equity funds seek to replicate the performance of the China Securities Index 300 which tracks 300 stocks traded on the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges. These are the first cross-market ETFs to be listed in China.
In developed markets equities, DAX German equity funds swung back with strong flows of USD4.3bn in May on the heels of (USD5.1bn) outflows last month. Japanese equity ETPs also had a strong showing in May, garnering USD3.6bn.
