Amundi pushes to number three spot in ETFs in Europe


Since the beginning of 2017, Amundi ETF has attracted more than EUR2.2 billion net inflows, representing over 10 per cent of total European market net new assets, and positioning itself as third ETF provider in Europe in terms of flows.

The firm writes that three key themes drove investor flows into the Amundi ETF range: Fixed income, and more specifically Amundi ETF Floating Rate Notes range, which can represent a hedging solution for rising US interest rates, without sacrificing potential yield. This innovative range, offered with or without currency hedging, has already reached an AUM of over EUR2 billion and collected over EUR700 million since January 1st 2017.

European Equities: despite continuing political uncertainty, investors are increasingly considering a potential recovery of European equities, based on positive macroeconomic signals and attractive valuations. Amundi price-competitive European equities ETF range attracted more than EUR1 billion over a two-month period, representing over 45 per cent of European ETF market flows with similar exposures.

Japanese Equities: investors wanting to profit from the positive outlook for the Japanese economy, which is showing signals of potential acceleration, chose to get exposed to the JPX-Nikkei 400 Index. Amundi ETF provides the less expensive ETF in Europe on this index, which collected more than EUR240 million YTD.
Fannie Wurtz (pictured), Managing Director of the Amundi ETF, Indexing & Smart Beta business line, says: “Having achieved the record result of over EUR4 billion net new assets in 2016, Amundi ETF is sustaining this positive trend, now positioning ourselves as the number three in Europe in terms of YTD flows. Investors choose Amundi ETF as it offers them a full choice of price-competitive and innovative solutions for the different market challenges posed by the fast-changing current economic environment”.
