First half 2015 ETF inflows beat those of 2014


ETFGI reports that ETF inflows for the first half of 2015 surpassed those of 2014. USD152 billion in net new assets was gathered by ETFs and ETPs listed globally in the first half of 2015, according to ETFGI’s preliminary ETF and ETP global insights report for the first half of 2015.

The first half of 2014 saw USD130 billion in net new assets.
The close of June 2015 saw the global ETF/ETP industry with 5,823 ETFs/ETPs, with 11,295 listings, assets of USD2.971 trillion, from 259 providers listed on 62 exchanges in 51 countries, according to ETFGI.
“June was a difficult month for most markets around the world. The S&P 500 index ended June down 2 per cent for the month and finished the first half of 2015 up 1 per cent. Market performance in the first half of 2015 was impacted by a number of uncertainties in the first half of 2015: the situation in Greece and the impact on the Eurozone, when the Fed will raise interest rates, volatility in the Chinese market and the MERS outbreak in South Korea” says Deborah Fuhr, managing partner of ETFGI.
