ETFGI reports positive inflows despite volatility


Deborah Fuhr, managing partner of ETFGI, reports that ETFs/ETPs listed globally gathered USD20.8 billion over August 2015 in net new assets, marking their nineteenth consecutive month of positive net inflows.

She writes that in the first eight months of 2015, record levels of net new assets have been gathered by ETFs/ETPs listed globally, with net inflows of USD219.7 billion, marking a 16 per cent increase over the prior record set during the first eight months of 2014.
In the US net inflows reached USD127.5 billion, which is 19 per cent higher than the prior record set last year, while in Europe year to date net inflows climbed to USD59.7 billion, representing a 17 per cent increase on the record set year to date through the end of August 2014. In Japan, year to date net inflows were up 74 per cent on the record set last year, standing at USD28.9 billion at the end of August 2015.
“Worries about China’s stock market, currency and economy mixed with falling commodity prices helped to cause a correction in the US stock market.  The S&P 500 index ended August down 6 per cent”, Fuhr says.
