November sees European ETF assets increase according to Lipper stats


The Lipper team at Refinitiv reports that for November, ETF promoters in Europe experienced estimated net inflows of EUR16.9 billion for November.

Assets under management in the European ETF industry (EUR952.8 billion) increasing during November and Equity ETFs (+EUR16.3 billion) posted the highest estimated net inflows in the European ETF industry for November.

The best-selling Lipper global classification for November was Equity Global (+EUR5.6 billion), followed by Equity Emerging Markets Global (+EUR1.3 billion) and Equity China (+EUR1.1 billion). iShares was the best-selling ETF promoter in Europe for November (+EUR7.7 billion), ahead of UBS ETF (+EUR2.8 billion) and Xtrackers (+EUR2.3 billion).

The 10 best-selling funds gathered total net inflows of EUR6.5 billion for November, and the best-selling ETF for November, was UBS (Irl) Fund Solutions plc – MSCI ACWI SF UCITS ETF (HUSD) A-acc, accounted for net inflows of EUR1.1 billion.

Detlef Glow, Lipper Head of EMEA Research at Refinitiv, says: “November 2020 was another positive month for the European ETF industry since promoters enjoyed inflows.  These inflows occurred in a surprisingly positive market environment in which investor sentiment was impacted by the presidential election in the US and the increasing dynamics of COVID-19.

“The positive performance of the underlying markets led in combination with the estimated net inflows to increasing assets under management.  The increase of EUR75.6 billion for November was driven by the performance of the underlying markets, while net sales contributed inflows of EUR16.9 billion to the AUM.  It was not surprising equity funds held the majority of assets, followed by bond funds, commodities products, alternative UCITS products, money market funds, mixed-assets fund, and ‘other’ funds.”
