BlackRock reports surge in ETP inflows in March


Global exchange-traded product (ETP) inflows surged to USD12.9 billion in March, the highest level of inflows so far this year, according to BlackRock, provider of the iShares range of exchange-traded funds.

BlackRock’s ETP Landscape Report for March shows that US equity ETPs attracted USD15.8 billion during the month.
Flows were, however, affected by suggestions by the US Federal Reserve that interest rates may have to increase earlier in 2015 than previously expected.
Financial ETPs, generated USD1.6 billion during March, with US large-cap equity funds taking in USD5.5 billion.
Outflows for emerging markets equity ETPs slackened to USD1.8 billion.
Selling pressure eased for emerging markets equity ETPs, with redemptions moderating to USD1.8bn in March. The sector finished the month with six consecutive days of inflows across both broad-based and single country funds.
Japanese and pan-European equity ETPs meanwhile, both strong contributors to flows during the past year, stalled as further signs of economic improvement remained slow to emerge.
Fixed income ETP outflows were USD3.2bn for the month. Steady asset gathering for broad/aggregate, investment grade and high yield corporate bond funds was outweighed by US Treasury ETP redemptions of USD9.5bn that reversed February’s inflows.
