Amundi ETF sees assets under management increase by 37 per cent in 2012


2012 was a successful year for Amundi ETF with net inflows of EUR1.4bn recorded over the year, representing growth in assets under management of 37 per cent.

AUM rose from EUR6.5bn at end-December 2011 to EUR8.9bn at the end of 2012, a rise of 37 per cent compared to growth in the overall European ETF market of 22 per cent.

This trend continued in 2013 with the EUR9bn AUM threshold crossed in January.

The product range was expanded in 2012, with two recently introduced products bringing the total available to more than 100 ETFs:
– One tracking the GOVT Bond Highest Rated EUROMTS Investment Grade 1-3 index, a new asset allocation tool within the investment grade Eurozone fixed income range
– One tracking the TOPIX Euro Daily Hedged strategy index, offering a solution for investors wishing to gain exposure to Japanese equities while benefiting from daily hedging against euro/yen currency risk

In April, Amundi ETF pioneered a new phase in its European development plan by entering the Spanish market, while continuing to strengthen its local presence in other major countries. Amundi ETF’s range now includes more than 430 cross-listings and registrations in seven European countries: France (102), Germany (75), Italy (75), Netherlands (75), Switzerland (55), UK (43) and Spain (eight).
Valérie Baudson (pictured), managing director of Amundi ETF, says: “In 2012 we observed two trends that accounted for the majority of inflows: a search for security in the first part of the year, then, as risk appetite gradually returned during the summer, strong interest for corporate bonds as well as for developed and emerging market equities. 2013 looks like it will be a pivotal year and an interesting challenge in terms of asset allocation. We aim to continue to offer innovative and competitive products that meet the needs of investors.”
