Study finds majority plans to maintain or increase exposure to ETPs over 2015


New research from Source, a provider of Exchange Traded Products (ETPs) in Europe, reveals that those investing in ETPs on average use three to four different types, and 78 per cent plan to maintain or increase their exposure to these products during 2015.

The findings reveal that 71 per cent of these investors currently have exposure to tracker ETPs, and 37 per cent plan to increase this during 2015, compared to just 5 per cent who intend to reduce their exposure here.  The corresponding figures for actively managed ETPs are 40 per cent, 10 per cent and 4 per cent.
Just over one in three of those interviewed claim to use risk controlled ETPs, and 13 per cent intend to increase their exposure to these vehicles, compared to just 3 per cent who anticipate they will reduce it. 
Peter Thompson, President of Source, says: “The ETP market is incredibly creative and is constantly pushing back the boundaries of innovation. We have just announced that together with FTSE Russell and Research Affiliates, we have created the FTSE RAFITM Equity Income Index Series, a new family of indices targeting high dividend-paying stocks which have also been screened to favour sustainable income.
“It is clear that innovation, coupled with the fact that ETPs are often very liquid and often have very competitive fees, is fuelling growing demand for these products.”
