Amundi ETF is expanding into the European retail market by extending its physical exchange-traded fund range.
Amundi ETF reported EUR1.2 billion of inflows since the beginning of the year, bringing total assets under management to more than EUR21 billion.
To accompany the growing need for low cost ETF-based solutions among distributors, Amundi ETF expands its physical ETF range to nearly 20 products and will leverage Amundi Group capabilities to develop discretionary or advisory portfolio management for model portfolios.
Amundi serves over 100 million retail clients globally and hass a strong relationship with its distribution partners. As a result, Amundi is able to offer its partners products based on their needs in terms of product ranges, investment solutions and related services, in particular via the development of ETF-based wrapped solutions.
The new range will give investors access to a selection of core equity (global, Europe, Euro, US, Japan) and fixed income exposures (global government bonds, European government bonds, global aggregate, European corporate bonds). The ETFs will be available on Europe’s main stock exchanges in the coming weeks.
Fannie Wurtz, managing director at Amundi ETF, Indexing & Smart Beta, says: “Growing retail demand will be one of the most important growth drivers of the ETF industry in the coming years. The expansion of our physical ETF product range underlines our commitment to that space and will provide crucial and competitive building blocks many distributors are looking for in order to design packaged solutions for investors.”
Since the beginning of the year, Amundi ETF has reinforced its sales teams with senior hires all over Europe, in order to capture the opportunities arising from growing demand among both institutional investors and distributors.
