Japanese ETF/ETP assets hit record high of USD269bn in November, says ETFGI


Assets invested in ETFs/ETPs listed in Japan increased by over 50 per cent during the first 11 months of 2017 to reach a new high of USD269 billion at the end of November, according to ETFGI’s November 2017 Japan ETF and ETP industry insights report.

Assets invested in ETFs/ETPs grew by 55.4 per cent during the first 11 months of 2017, from USD84.6 billion at the end of 2016. With one month of 2017 still to go the increase of USD96.0 billion represented the greatest absolute annual increase on record, more than doubling the previous record of USD46.8 billion set for the whole of 2015.
If the trend continues through December, 2017 is also on track to see the greatest percentage increase in assets since initial growth in use of ETFs in Japan in the early 2000s.
Year-to-date, through end of November 2017, ETFs and ETPs listed in Japan saw record net inflows of USD48.6 billion; 39.0 per cent more than net inflows for the whole of 2016. The majority of these flows can be attributed to the top 20 ETFs by net new assets, which collectively gathered USD49.5 billion during 2017. The TOPIX Exchange Traded Fund (1306 JP) on its own accounted for net inflows of USD15.3 billion.

Equity ETFs/ETPs saw year-to-date net inflows of USD50.1 billion, which is greater than the net inflows of USD34.3 billion over the same period last year.
