Active ETFs and ETPs gathered USD24 billion in net new assets in the first 11 months of 2017


Active ETFs and ETPs gathered USD24 billion in net new assets in the first 11 months of 2017, according to ETFGI’s November 2017 Active ETF and ETP industry insights report. 

The report reveals that assets invested in Active ETFs and ETPs grew by 53.4 per cent year-to-date, the greatest annual increase since 2009 when markets recovered following the 2008 financial crisis, and an increase of 11.7% on the previous record of USD65.77 billion set in October 2017.

Year-to-date, through end of November 2017, Active ETFs and ETPs listed in globally saw record net inflows of USD23.73 billion; 141.2% more than net inflows for the whole of 2016, and more than double that of the previous YTD record for the same period of USD8.40 billion set in November 2016. November 2017 also marked the 35th consecutive month of net inflows into ETFs/ETPs, with USD2.87 billion gathered during the month. 

The majority of these flows can be attributed to the top 20 ETFs by net new assets, which collectively gathered USD14.06 billion during 2017. The PIMCO Enhanced Short Maturity Strategy Fund (MINT US) on its own accounted for net inflows of USD2.24 billion.

Similarly, the top five ETPs by net new assets collectively gathered USD46.00 million year-to-date during 2017.

Equity ETFs/ETPs saw net inflows of USD962.00 million in November, bringing year-to-date net inflows to USD6.34 billion, which is greater than the net inflows of USD2.50 billion over the same period last year. Fixed income ETFs and ETPs experienced net inflows of USD1.72 billion in November, growing year-to-date net inflows to USD16.31 billion, which is greater than the same period last year which saw net inflows of USD5.11 billion. Commodity ETFs/ETPs experienced net inflows of USD137.00 million in November.
