Global ETP industry saw record flows in 2012, says BlackRock


The global exchange-traded product industry attracted record-breaking annual flows of USD262.7bn in 2012, eclipsing the previous annual record of USD259.7bn set in 2008, according to data released by BlackRock.

Fixed income and emerging markets equity ETPs were key differentiators in 2012 with both categories setting new annual flows records at USD70.0bn and USD54.8bn, respectively.

Assets ended the year at USD1.9bn, 27 per cent higher than a year earlier.

Notwithstanding angst over the US Fiscal Cliff, ETP investors followed a traditional risk-on pattern in December favouring US large cap and emerging market equities while withdrawing funds from US Treasury ETPs.
