European ETFs saw EUR3.4bn net new assets in January


European exchange-traded fund market flows continued to be sustained in February 2014, with net new assets during the month amounting to EUR3.4bn, close to the record high seen in January, according to the latest Lyxor ETF Barometer.

Due to a positive market impact (MSCI ACWI 2.35 per cent in February 2014), total market assets under management have increased by four per cent vs. the end of 2013, reaching EUR299bn.
Markets have continued to be impacted by emerging markets tensions. European assets, both fixed income and equity, are still the main beneficiaries.
February marked the second consecutive strong month in terms of ETF inflows, with fixed income indexations slightly ahead of equity ones, reflecting a more risk-off positioning from investors. NNA of this asset class have reached a 12-month record high at EUR1.9bn, more than twice the one year average.
Following reassuring comments from the Fed that the scheduled end of the quantitative programme is still unchanged, inflows have come back to equities.
Developed equity indexations have experienced significant inflows and European equities have benefited in particular from the expected new actions from the ECB to sustain growth and avoid deflation. Among them, peripheral countries and financial indexations have seen significant inflows backed by positive economic news flow and attractive valuation.
