The latest European ETF Market Review from Thomson Reuters Lipper shows that assets under management in the European exchange-traded fund (ETF) industry declined from EUR449.0 billion to EUR430.3 billion during January.
Detlef Glow, Head of EMEA research at Lipper and author of this report reports that the decrease of EUR18.7 billion was driven mainly by the performance of the underlying markets (-EUR20.7 billion), while net sales contributed a positive EUR2.0 billion to the overall assets under management in the ETF segment.
Over January, equity funds (+EUR1.1 billion) enjoyed the highest net inflows for January, according to Lipper. Equity Eurozone (+EUR1.6 billion), Equity UK (+EUR0.8 billion), and Equity Global (+EUR0.5 billion) were the best selling Lipper global classifications for January.
iShares (+EUR0.8 billion), db x-trackers (+EUR0.6 billion), and the Dutch Think Capital (+EUR0.4 billion) were the best-selling ETF promoters in Europe for January. The ten best-selling funds gathered net inflows of EUR3.3 billion for January, and Lyxor Euro Stoxx 50 (DR) UCITS ETF D-EUR (+EUR650 million) was the best-selling individual ETF for January.
