Global ETF and ETP assets reach record high of USD2.44trn, says ETFGI


Flows into ETFs and ETPs listed globally rebounded in February gathering net inflows of USD29.0bn which, when combined with the market performance in the month, pushed assets to a record high of USD2.44trn.

That is according to preliminary findings from ETFGI’s February Global ETF and ETP industry insights report.
The global ETF/ETP industry has 5,183 ETFs/ETPs, with 10,210 listings, from 219 providers on 59 exchanges.
“Positive comments from the Fed indicating that the US economy continues to brighten, the S&P 500 ending February with a record close of 1859 and signs of a wider global recovery in equities seems to have caused investors to come out of their winter hibernation after the winter storms and put net inflows of USD29.0bn into ETFs/ETPs in February,” says Deborah Fuhr, managing partner at ETFGI.
Dissecting the overall net inflows we find that fixed income ETFs/ETPs gathered USD16.8bn – the largest net inflows – followed by equity ETFs/ETPs with USD10.2bn. Commodity ETFs/ETPs saw net inflows of USD870m.
The competition to gather assets remains high. The top 100 ETFs/ETPs – less than two per cent of the 5,183 ETFs/ETPs – account for more than half (57 per cent) of global assets. Only seven per cent of ETFs/ETPs hold more than USD1bn in assets, while 69 per cent have less than USD100m in assets, 59 per cent have less than USD50m in assets and nearly a third of all products have less than USD10m in assets.
In the first two months of 2014 Vanguard has gathered the largest net ETF/ETP inflows with USD9.4bn, followed by iShares with USD7.1bn, Nomura AM with USD4.2bn, First Trust with USD2.5bn and Guggenheim with USD2.0bn in net inflows.
