Gold, ESG and all things green colour the ETF world this week

It’s August and we are back to gold as the key commodity story this year. But should we see that huge USD1.3 billion inflow into gold ETFs at WisdomTree as a worrying sign of recession on the horizon? Read our interview with WisdomTree’s Nitesh Shah to find out. 

In other news, UBS dominates the European ETF ESG sector with 34 per cent of the assets in the strategy and over USD1 billion in its MSCI World Socially Responsible ETF. Our interview with Andrew Walsh reveals what and who are driving the demand for all things green.

We also have Refinitiv’s report on European ETF data for July which shows that the European ETF industry is still seeing a lot of concentration of assets with key players.

Voting closes for our US ETF awards at the end of August: please make your final votes here.
