Amundi reports equity ETFs dominated in October


Amundi writes that ETFs attracted EUR52.6 billion of global investment flows in October, amounting to EUR499.8 billion since the start of the year.

In the European ETF market, inflows totalled EUR6.8 billion euros (EUR80.6 billion since January), with EUR5.8 billion going into equities and EUR1 billion into bonds, respectively.
The strong appetite from investors for equity markets as a whole was reflected in the figures for ETF inflows in October, Amundi says, a trend which has also been seen since the beginning of the year, in Europe and across the world.

Inflows into this sub-asset class represented EUR41.5 billion by the end of the month (more than EUR352.8 billion since January), of which EUR6.8 billion came from Europe (more than EUR54 billion since the start of the year).

In the European ETF equity market, investors showed a marked increase in their appetite for Japanese equities, which totalled EUR1 billion of inflows, closely followed by global equities at EUR985 million and equities exposed to the Eurozone at EUR751 million.

European investors’ enthusiasm for sectorial and smart beta ETFs, evident since the start of the year, was reaffirmed in October. These categories of ETFs benefited from EUR2.4 billion of net inflows over the month, adding up to EUR19.2 billion since January.

Within this universe, in the last month, financial sector ETFs dominated, with more than EUR413 million of flows into the category, followed by Small Caps ETFs (more than EUR396 million) and Multi-Factor ETFs (more than EUR239 million). Since the beginning of the year, Value ETFs have led the way, with more than EUR3.1 billion going into this segment.
Within the European ETFs bonds market, the main suppliers of capital were US corporate debt (more than EUR524 million), variable rate bonds (more than EUR357 million) and Eurozone corporate bonds (more than EUR352 million).
