Global ETFs and ETPs gather record USD160.5bn net new assets in July


Exchange-traded funds and exchange-traded products listed globally gathered USD33.8 billion in net new assets (NNA) in July, pushing year-to-date NNA to USD160.5 billion, according to data released by ETFGI.

This represents a new record level of NNA at this point in the year, outpacing the previous high of USD149.9 billion set in 2013.
Assets declined slightly (0.4 per cent) from their record high of USD2.64trn in June to USD2.62trn at the end of July.
The global ETF/ETP industry now has 5,410 ETFs/ETPs, with 10,477 listings, from 222 providers listed on 60 exchanges, according to preliminary data from ETFGI’s end July 2014 Global ETF and ETP industry insights report.
The ETF/ETP industries in Europe and Japan have gathered record levels of YTD NNA at USD42.7 billion and USD14.9bn, respectively. New record highs in assets were reached at the end of July by ETF/ETP industries in Canada with USD66bn, Asia Pacific (ex-Japan) with USD103bn, and Japan with USD91.5 billion.
“In July investors invested almost all net new money into equity exposures as investor confidence was positive through most of month. The S&P 500 hit an all-time high during July, but ended the month down one per cent as markets were rattled at the very end of the month by the situations in the Ukraine and Gaza and a poor start to the US earnings season. Developed markets outside the US ended the month down two per cent, while emerging markets gained two per cent, Asia was up five per cent and frontier markets were up four per cent in July,” says Deborah Fuhr, managing partner at ETFGI.
In July 2014, ETFs/ETPs saw net inflows of USD33.83bn. Equity ETFs/ETPs gathered the largest net inflows with USD27.7 billion, followed by fixed income with USD3.2bn, and commodity ETFs/ETPs with USD1.7 billion in net inflows.
Vanguard gathered the largest net ETF/ETP inflows in July with USD7.69 billion, followed by iShares with USD6.82bn, SPDR ETFs with USD4.24bn, DB x-trackers with USD1.97 billion and PowerShares with USD1.79 billion in net inflows.
