Japanese ETF and ETP assets reach new record high of USD415.70bn

RELATED TOPICS​

ETFs and ETPs listed in Japan gathered net inflows of USD7.60 billion during May, bringing year-to-date net inflows to USD41.51 billion a record level of year to date net inflows.  Assets invested in the Japanese ETFs/ETPs industry have increased by 8.8 per cent, from USD382.21 billion at the end of April, to USD415.70 billion at the end of May to reach a new record high, according to ETFGI’s May 2020 Japanese ETFs and ETPs industry landscape insights report, an annual paid-for research subscription service.

“The S&P 500 gained 4.8 per cent in May and remains only 5.0 per cent down from its level at the beginning of the year, as markets anticipated relief from a Covid-19-driven economic slowdown,” says Deborah Fuhr, managing partner, founder and owner of ETFGI. “Developed markets outside the US were also up 4.8 per cent for the month with Sweden (up 9.9 per cent) and Germany (up 9.2 per cent) the top performers, while Hong Kong (down 7.7 per cent), was the only market to be down for the month due to recent political turmoil. Emerging markets lagged during the month, gaining 1.3 per cent as the economic impact of virus shutdowns remains somewhat more uncertain compared to developed regions.”
