US ETFs hit eighth consecutive month of net inflows


The latest US report on ETFs and ETPs listed in the US from ETFGI shows they have raised a record USD145 billion in net new assets as of the end of the third quarter of 2015.

Despite September’s market volatility, investors allocated USD19.1 billion in net new assets to ETFs and ETPs listed in the US during the month. ETFGI reports that this marks the eighth consecutive month of positive net inflows.
Figures for the first three quarters of 2015 reveal that record levels of net new assets have been gathered by ETFs/ETPs listed globally with net inflows of USD250.5 billion, marking a 26 per cent increase over the prior record set at this time last year.
In the US, net inflows reached USD145.4 billion, which is 7.8 per cent higher than the prior record set in 2012, while in Europe year to date (YTD) net inflows climbed to USD61.6 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 USD36.4 billion at the end of September 2015.
