ETFGI reports that active ETFs and ETPs listed globally gathered USD2.75 billion in net inflows, bringing YTD net inflows to USD12.12 billion. This represents 78.24 per cent more than the USD6.80 billion in net inflows at this point last year.
At the end of April 2018, the Global active ETF/ETP industry had 483 ETFs/ETPs, with 585 listings, assets of USD86.09 billion, from 101 providers on 18 exchanges in 15 countries, ETFGI says.
