ETFGI reports 2017 ETF assets increased by 36.3 per cent


ETF data provider ETFGI reports that assets invested in ETFs and ETPs listed globally increased by 36.3 per cent during 2017 to reach a new high of USD4.835 trillion at the end of December.

The firm reports that assets invested in globally-listed ETFs/ETPs grew by a record USD1.287 trillion during 2017, over double the previous record of USD554.00 billion set in 2016. The increase of 36.3 per cent, from USD3.548 trillion at the end of 2016, also represents the greatest growth in assets since 2009 when markets recovered following the 2008 financial crisis.

During 2017 ETFs/ETPs listed globally saw record net inflows of USD653.97 billion according to ETFGI; 67.4 per cent more than net inflows for 2016, and over double the average for net inflows over the previous five years. December 2017 also marked the 47th consecutive month of net inflows into globally-listed ETFs/ETPs, with USD53.81 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 USD228.52 billion during 2017. The iShares Core S&P 500 ETF (IVV US) on its own accounted for net inflows of USD30.20 billion.
