ETFs linked to MSCI indices reach all time high


Index provider MSCI reports that assets in ETFs linked to its indices have reached an all-time high of USD707 billion in early November, an increase of 53 per cent from a year ago.

Since the start of this year, AUM in ETFs linked to MSCI indexes rose USD226 billion, which includes net in-flows of USD116 billion and market appreciation of USD110 billion, as of November 6, 2017. There are currently more than 980 ETFs tracking MSCI indexes globally. More equity ETFs track MSCI’s indexes than those of any other index provider, the firm says.
AUM in ETFs linked to MSCI indexes are one component of the more than USD12.4 trillion in total equity AUM benchmarked to MSCI indexes globally. Total AUM benchmarked to MSCI indexes increased by approximately 19 per cent year-over-year highlighting the firm’s continued growth in the equity markets.

“Having over USD12.4 trillion in AUM benchmarked to our equity indexes globally is a testament to our leadership and our ability to deliver a global index framework with broad market coverage, that provides an accurate reflection of the equity markets for our clients,” says Diana Tidd, MSCI’s Head of Index. 
Currently, more than USD3.2 trillion in AUM is benchmarked to the MSCI ACWI index series, which is a year-over-year increase of 19 per cent, and more than USD1.9 trillion in AUM is benchmarked to the MSCI EAFE index series. MSCI indexes are the benchmark for more than 85 per cent of all internationally focused fund assets. MSCI Emerging Market index series has over USD1.6 trillion in AUM benchmarked to it.
