Source maintains second place in net new ETP assets in H1


Investors poured over USD2.6bn of net new assets into European exchange-traded products in June 2012, raising the total for the six months to the end of 2Q to USD8.3bn.

While equity and commodity products remain core investments, interest in volatility, fixed income ETPs and key benchmark ETFs have picked up.

Source captured net new assets of over USD171m in June, bringing the YTD total to USD1.85bn for H1.

According to both ETF Global Insight and Deutsche Bank Research, at the end of Q2, Source was ranked second in Europe for the second quarter running in terms of net new assets year to date.
Volatility ETPs continue to attract investor assets, adding over USD900m in new assets in H1.

Source has realised large flows into broad equity indices like the S&P500, MSCI Europe, MSCI EM and MAN GLG Europe Plus Source ETF. These ETFs alone added more than USD 717m in net new assets in H1.
The second quarter saw increased demand for the new PIMCO Source Short-Term High Yield Corporate Bond ETF, adding a further USD49m in Q2. Since its launch on 19 March, this fund has already attracted USD133m in net new assets.
Although the first half continued to be challenging for the performance of commodity assets, investors continued to increase their exposure to gold and broad commodity markets. The Source Physical Gold P-ETC saw USD154m of inflows and the LGIM Commodity Composite Source ETF, which was launched in early Q1 captured in excess of USD103m of new client money.
