Global ETF market strong in September


The global ETF market had a particularly strong September – net flows amounted to EUR42.9 billion (up from EUR31 billion in August), driven primarily by equity ETFs (+EUR37.3 billion) and to a lesser extent by bonds (+EUR5.2 billion) – according to data released by Amundi.

The US market saw EUR35.8 billion of net subscriptions, ahead of the European market (+EUR5.4 billion) and the Asian market (+1.7 billion). Since the beginning of the year, inflows from around the world into ETFs have totalled more than EUR308 billion.
In Europe, out of the EUR5.4 billion net flows, 5.06 billion went into equity ETFs and 1.05 billion into bond ETFs, whilst commodities products were hit by withdrawals of EUR763 million. Last month, European investors cautiously poured EUR417 million into European equity ETFs and EUR171 million into Eurozone equity ETFs.
ETFs tracking US equities (+EUR1.9 billion) and also sought exposure to international equity markets (+EUR718 million). Additionally, in September, they showed a marked interest in smart beta strategies, with three strategies proving particularly popular: Quality (+EUR722 million), Momentum (+EUR563 million) and Minimum Volatility (+EUR496 million).
In the bond markets, European investors preferred government (+EUR1.1 billion) to corporate debt in September (+EUR793 million). Within the sovereign debt universe, the debt segment of emerging countries dominated (+EUR680 million), while among corporate securities, Eurozone high-yield bonds gained the highest volume of subscriptions (+EUR462 million). By contrast, investors reduced their exposure to US inflation-linked bonds (-EUR314 million).
