Fund managers expect huge growth in European ETP market


Research conducted on behalf of Lyxor reveals that 78 per cent of fund managers based in the UK and Ireland expect the value of assets invested in European exchange-traded funds and products to increase over the next three years, with 56 per cent anticipating a rise of over 10 per cent.

A fifth (20 per cent) of fund managers said assets will increase by over 30 per cent. Only 7.6 per cent said that they expected the size of the European ETF and ETP market to fall.

Research from Lyxor reveals that the European ETP market had EUR241,072m in assets under management at the end of April 2012.

Some 43 per cent of fund managers surveyed believe European listed ETPs and ETFs will see a net inflow of assets between now and 2015 because they are competitively priced. A further 24 per cent said they offer great liquidity, while 18 per cent cited that they allow investors to access asset classes that can be otherwise difficult to invest in.

Overall, 71 per cent of the fund managers interviewed believe that equity based European listed ETPs will see the biggest increase in assets under management over the next three years followed by the commodity and fixed income areas.
