Lipper team reports assets up in European ETFs over August


The European monthly ETF data from the Lipper team at Refinitiv shows that ETF promoters in Europe experienced net inflows of EUR8.9 billion for August. 

The firm estimates that assets under management in the European ETF industry (EUR877.1 billion) increased during August, with bond ETFs (+EUR4.3 billion) posting the highest net inflows in the European ETF industry for the month. 

The best-selling Lipper global classification for August was Equity Global (+EUR1.7 billion), followed by Equity US (+EUR1.1 billion) and Bond CNY (+EUR0.9 billion). iShares was the best-selling ETF promoter in Europe for August (+EUR3.1 billion), ahead of Xtrackers (+EUR1.5 billion) and Amundi ETF (+EUR1.1 billion), the report says.

The 10 best-selling funds gathered total net inflows of EUR3.8 billion for August, and the best-selling ETF for August was Amundi S&P 500 UCITS ETF- USD (C), which accounted for net inflows of EUR0.6 billion. 

Detlef Glow, Lipper Head of EMEA Research at Refinitiv, says: “August was another positive month for the European ETF industry since promoters enjoyed inflows as economies and securities markets stabilised further after the coronavirus lockdown-induced economic downturn. 

“The combination of above average inflows and the positive performance of underlying markets led to an increase in assets under management from EUR843.5 billion as of July 31, 2020, to EUR877.1 billion at the end of August. The increase of EUR33.6 billion for August was driven by the performance of the underlying markets (+EUR24.7 billion), while net sales contributed EUR8.9 billion to the increase in assets. 

“It was not surprising equity funds (EUR581.0 billion) held the majority of assets, followed by bond funds (EUR257.9 billion), commodities products (EUR27.0 billion), alternative UCITS products (EUR5.9 billion), money market funds (EUR3.6 billion), mixed-assets funds (EUR1.7 billion), and ‘other’ funds (EUR0.2 billion).”
