September marks twentieth consecutive month of inflows to ETFs


Figures from ETFGI show that although September was another roller coaster ride for investors, they allocated USD32 billion in net new assets to ETFs/ETPs listed globally during the month. Deborah Fuhr (pictured), ETFGI’s managing partner, says this marks the twentieth consecutive month of positive net inflows. 

In the first three quarters of 2015, record levels of net new assets have been gathered by ETFs/ETPs listed globally, with net inflows of USD251 billion marking a 25 per cent increase over the prior record set at this time last year, she writes.
In the United States, net inflows reached USD146 billion, which is 8.5 per cent higher than the prior record set in 2012, while in Europe year to date (YTD) net inflows climbed to USD62 billion, representing a 30 per cent increase on the record set YTD through end of September 2014. In Japan, YTD net inflows were up 143 per cent on the record set last year, standing at USD36 billion at the end of September 2015.
“Uncertainty on China and when the Fed will raise interest rates continues to weigh the markets and investor sentiment. The S&P 500 decreased 2.6 per cent in September, and is down 6.7 per cent year to date,” Fuhr says.
The Global ETF/ETP industry had 5,978 ETFs, ETPs, with 11,518 listings, assets of USD2.8 trillion, from 270 providers listed on 63 exchanges in 51 countries.
ETFs/ETPs listed globally gathered net inflows of USD32 billion in September 2015. Equity ETFs/ETPs gathered the largest net inflows with USD17 billion, followed by fixed income ETFs/ETPs with USD12 billion, while commodity ETFs/ETPs experienced net outflows of USD590 million.
YTD through end of September 2015, ETFs/ETPs listed globally have gathered net inflows of USD251 billion. Equity ETFs/ETPs have gathered the largest net inflows YTD with USD156 billion, followed by fixed income ETFs/ETPs with USD64 billion, and commodity ETFs/ETPs with USD3 billion.
