The European ETF Market Review from Thomson Reuters Lipper for full year 2017 finds that European ETF assets hit an all-time high in 2017.

Detlef Glow (pictured), Head of EMEA research at Thomson Reuters Lipper says that assets in European ETFs reached EUR631.2 billion in 2017. Equity ETFs (+EUR62.8 billion) were the asset type with the highest net inflows in the European ETF industry over the course of 2017, he says.

Equity US (EUR97.3 billion) was the peer group with the highest assets under management at the end of December 2017, while the bestselling Lipper global classification over the course of 2017 was Equity Global (+EUR11.8 billion), followed by Equity US (+EUR10.7 billion) and Equity Eurozone (+EUR8.3 billion).

iShares (EUR294.9 billion) accounted for 46.72 per cent of the overall assets under management, far ahead of the number-two promoter—Xtrackers (EUR68.1 billion)—and the number-three promoter—Lyxor ETF (EUR64.2 billion), according to Thomson Reuters Lipper.

iShares, with net sales of EUR34.6 billion, was the bestselling ETF promoter in Europe, followed at a distance by Xtrackers (+EUR11.2 billion) and Lyxor ETF (+EUR10.9 billion).

Thomson Reuters Lipper reports that the 10 bestselling funds gathered total net inflows of EUR18.9 billion for 2017. The iShares Core S&P 500 UCITS ETF USD (Acc) (EUR21.5 billion) was the largest individual ETF by assets under management for 2017.
