Assets invested in exchange-traded funds and exchange-traded products listed in Japan reached a new record high of USD148 billion at the end of June 2016, according to ETFGI’s June 2016 global ETF and ETP industry insights report.

“Markets and investors around the world were engulfed in the chaos following what many saw as the unexpected result of the UK’s June 23 vote. Volatility was up significantly during the month. The S&P 500 index was up just 0.3 per cent. Emerging markets were up 3.94 per cent while developed markets ex-US declined 2.87 per cent. There is still uncertainty in the markets due to questions on when and how Brexit changes will be implement and the many changes happening in UK political parties," says Deborah Fuhr, managing partner at ETFGI.
