Refinitiv Lipper reveals eighteenth month of inflows to European ETFs


Refinitiv Lipper’s figures for ETF promoters in Europe over September reveal that they experienced estimated net inflows of EUR13.0 billion.

Assets under management in the European ETF industry stood at EUR1,219.4 billion at the end of September 2021. Equity ETFs (+EUR7.5 billion) posted the highest estimated net inflows in the European ETF industry for September. 

The best-selling Lipper global classification for September was Equity Global (+EUR3.3 billion), followed by Equity US (+EUR3.1 billion) and Bond EUR Corporates (+EUR0.9 billion). 

iShares was the best-selling ETF promoter in Europe for September (+EUR7.9 billion), ahead of Amundi ETF (+EUR1.3 billion) and Xtrackers (+EUR1.2 billion). The 10 best-selling funds gathered total net inflows of EUR6.1 billion for September. 

The best-selling ETF for September, iShares Core S&P 500 UCITS ETF USD (Acc), accounted for net inflows of EUR1.5 billion.  

Detlef Glow, Head of EMEA Research at Refinitiv Lipper, says: “September 2021 marked the eighteenth consecutive month with inflows into ETFs after the outflows caused by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. 

“These inflows occurred in a negative and volatile market environment in which investor sentiment was still impacted by the dynamics of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economies around the globe and the resulting actions taken by central banks and governments in Europe and other parts of the world. The negative performance of the underlying markets led to decreasing assets under management (from EUR1,1230.3 billion as of August 31, 2021, to EUR1,219.4 billion at the end of September) despite estimated net inflows.”
