European ETFs see net inflows in August


European ETFs saw net inflows in August which, in spite of a negative market environment, led to an increase in assets under management from EUR670.1 billion, as of 31 July, to EUR671.7 billion at the end of August.

That’s according to the latest European ETF Market Report from Thomson Reuters Lipper which highlights that the increase of EUR1.7 billion for August was driven by net sales (+EUR2.3 billion), while the performance of the underlying markets contributed a negative EUR0.7 billion to the AUM in the European ETF segment.
With regard to the overall number of products, equity funds (EUR484.8 billion) held the majority of the assets, followed by bond funds (EUR158.6 billion), commodity products (EUR19.2 billion), ‘other’ funds (EUR4.8 billion), money market funds (EUR2.8 billion), mixed-asset funds (EUR1.0 billion), and alternative UCITS products (EUR0.4 billion).
The report reveals that the best-selling Lipper global classification for August was Equity US (+EUR1.7 billion), followed by Bond USD (+EUR0.8 billion) and Equity Global (+EUR0.7 billion), while Vanguard was the best-selling ETF promoter in Europe for August (+EUR0.8 billion), well ahead of Xtrackers (+EUR0.5 billion) and SPDR (+EUR0.5 billion).
The ten best-selling funds, meanwhile, gathered total net inflows of EUR3.1 billion for August, while the best-selling ETF for the month, the Vanguard S&P 500 UCITS ETF USD, accounted for net inflows of EUR0.6 billion, or 25.33 per cent of the overall net inflows.
