Lyxor reports first outflows in risk-based ETFs


Lyxor reports that European smart beta ETF market flows are still positive in the second quarter of 2015, but, growth is slowing, compared with the first quarter.

Year to date net new assets at the end of June totalled EUR2.3 billion, 60 per cent of the 2014 net new assets, within the first half of the year. Total assets under management are up 41 per cent compared to the end of 2014, reaching EUR10.9 billion.
Lyxor reports that year to date, ETF flows are still sustained on all three smart beta categories even though the second quarter of 2015 has been impacted by increasing market volatility.
For smart beta categories, the second quarter of the year saw the smallest quarter in terms of inflows for smart beta ETFs over the span of one year. This was in line with the overall European ETF market flow trends in May and June, which were highly impacted by the increasing volatility on all markets, Lyxor says.
Fundamental ETFs were still most popular with some inflows into the Nikkei 400 and also significant inflows in the Quality income indices, which offer attractive dividend yields and defensive profiles against a backdrop of heightened uncertainties and low interest rates.
Lyxor reports that, for the first time, risk-based ETFs have started to see some outflows, in particular on Min Vol/Low Vol ETFs. In the factor allocation space, investors have also been rather cautious in May and June.
