Amundi reports global ETF flows for May totalled EUR34bn


The latest ETF Market Flow reports, YTD and MTD, up to May 2018, compiled by Amundi reveal that inflows into the global ETF market continued their momentum in May, totalling more than EUR34 billion during the month.
Amundi writes that in particular the inflows were driven by the dynamism of the US market (+EUR31 billion in May). Since the beginning of the year, the total inflows stand at EUR178.5 billion.
In Europe, investment flows into ETFs increased but remained relatively modest over the course of the month, at EUR2.2 billion. Equity ETFs gathered EUR2.6 billion in May. Investors pulled out of European stocks, in order to arbitrage in favour of US equities and even more so for international equities. Conversely, fixed income ETFs saw withdrawals of almost 700 million euros, affected by uncertainty. In May, investors turned away from both corporate (-EUR86 million) and particularly sovereign bonds (-EUR809 millions). By contrast, US bonds indexed to inflation garnered significant interest from investors, as well as floating rate notes ETFs, Amundi says.
