Amundi’s ETF Market Flows Analysis for August 2021 finds that global ETF investors continued to favour equities in August with positive in-flows into the asset class from Europe, the USA and Asia.

Total flows into global exchange-traded funds were EUR84.3 billion of which equities made up EUR60.9 billion with fixed income contributing EUR23.7 billion.

Within the European registered ETF market, Amundi reports that in terms of equities, investors allocated EUR6.67 billion to European-registered ETFs, a pick-up on the earlier month when flows were EUR5.4 billion. World and North America continued to be the most popular regional allocations.

In terms of fixed income, Amundi reports that there was a slowdown in allocations to European fixed income ETFs this month with these strategies gaining EUR3.5 billion compared with EUR6.6 billion in July. Investors preferred corporate debt allocating EUR2.4 billion to this asset class compared with EUR794 million allocated to government debt.

Over August, Amundi ETF reports that it expanded its Responsible Investing range with the launch on Xetra of a new Asian EM SRI fossil fuel free ETF. The firm writes that this new ETF offers exposure to Asian emerging market companies with high ESG ratings and excludes companies involved in business activities associated with negative environmental or social impact such as fossil fuel extraction, generation and reserves. Also on Xetra, Amundi ETF listed a new share class of its lowest rated Euro Government Bond IG ETF.
