Latin American-listed ETF and ETP assets see net inflows of USD107 million in September


Assets invested in ETFs and ETPs listed in Latin America saw net inflows of USD107 million during September 2018, according to figures released by ETFGI.

Total assets invested in ETFs and ETPs listed in Latin America decreased by 6.93 per cent, to USD8.36 billion at the end of September, down from USD8.98 billion at the end of August, according to ETFGI’s September 2018 Latin America ETF and ETP industry landscape insights report, an annual paid-for research subscription service.  (All dollar values in USD unless otherwise noted.)

“Developed markets were broadly up during September following positive economic data from the US, Japan and Eurozone, despite the US-China trade dispute and on-going political tension in Europe. Developed Markets ex-US gained 0.68 per cent during the month while the S&P 500’s winning streak tapered off, gaining only 0.57 per cent, with mid to small cap US equities closing down. Developing markets downward trend continued, with EM markets down 1.37 per cent and Frontier markets down 0.18 per cent, bringing year to date declines to 8.08 per cent and 7.56 per cent, respectively,” says Deborah Fuhr, managing partner and a founder of ETFGI.

At the end of September 2018, the Latin American ETF industry had 47 ETFs, with 1,126 listings, from 35 providers on 5 exchanges. Due to net inflows and market moves the assets invested in ETFs listed in the Latin America decreased by 6.93 per cent, from USD8.98 billion in August 2018 to USD8.36 billion.
Equity based ETFs attracted net inflows of USD78 million during September, bringing net inflows for 2018 to USD1.71 billion, greater than the USD851 million in net inflows at this point last year.
Flows into Fixed income ETFs netted to 0 during September, thus net inflows for 2018 remain constant at USD41.35 million, still considerably greater than the USD30.45 million in net outflows at this point last year.
A high proportion of net inflows during September can be attributed to the top 10 ETFs by net new assets, which collectively gathered USD144 million. The iShares Ibovespa Fundo de Indice ETF (BOVA11 BZ) saw net inflows of USD43 million, the largest in September.
