ETFs and ETPs listed in Europe see net inflows of USD5.06 billion in November 2018


ETFGI, a leading independent research and consultancy firm focussing on trends in the global ETF/ETP ecosystem, has reported that ETFs and ETPs listed in Europe gathered net new assets of USD5.06 billion during November 2018, marking the 50th consecutive month of net inflows.

Equity products gathered the largest net inflows during November, while active ETFs/ETPs experienced the largest net outflows.
ETF/ETP assets have increased by 1.3 per cent during November to USD794 billion.
“While trade talks continue to make noise in the headlines, the very real prospect of slowing global growth appears to be filtering into market sentiment. A seemingly more reposed approach to monetary policy along with the China-US trade truce provided enough of a tailwind to lift US markets to finish in the green by the end of November, with the S&P 500 gaining 2.04 per cent over the month bringing the year-to-date gain to 5.11 per cent. Apart from the Eurozone, where various domestic issues continue to dominate, most developed markets closed the month with marginal gains. The S&P developed ex-US BMI was up 0.17 per cent in November with year-to-date declines of 9.66 per cent. EM and FM bounced back from the October fall, finishing up 4.61 per cent and 1.94 per cent respectively, softening year-to-date declines to 11.2 per cent and 9.0 per cent”, says Deborah Fuhr, managing partner and a founder of ETFGI.
According to ETFGI’s November 2018 Europe ETF and ETP industry insights report, an annual paid-for research subscription service, equity products gathered the largest net inflows during November with USD2.98 billion, followed by fixed income ETFs/ETPs with USD2.39 billion, while active ETFs/ETPs experienced the largest net outflows with USD518 million.
At the end of November 2018, the European ETF/ETP industry had 2,319 ETFs/ETPs, with 8,098 listings, assets of USD794 billion, from 69 providers on 28 exchanges. ETF/ETP assets have increased by 1.3 per cent from USD783 billion at the end of October but decreased by 1.1 per cent from USD802 billion at the end of 2017.
Year-to-date through end of November, ETFs/ETPs listed in Europe have seen net inflows of USD52.8 billion, which is half the amount gathered at this point last year. Equity ETFs/ETPs gathered the largest net inflows year-to-date with USD37.0 billion, followed by fixed income ETFs/ETPs with USD14.6 billion, while leveraged inverse ETFs/ETPs experienced the largest net outflows with USD947 million. During November, the top 20 ETFs collectively gathered USD8.15 billion in net new assets.
