Detlef Glow, Head of EMEA Research at Refinitiv Lipper, comments: “The European ETF industry enjoyed inflows over the course of November 2022. These inflows occurred in a positive market environment. Nevertheless, concerns about high inflation rates, increasing interest rates, market turmoil in UK government bonds, geopolitical tensions, and disrupted delivery chains caused by the still ongoing COVID-19 pandemic were still looming. The performance of the underlying markets led in conjunction with the estimated net inflows to increasing assets under management (from EUR1,254.0 billion as of October 31, 2022, to EUR1,309.9 billion at the end of November). At a closer look, the increase of EUR55.9 billion for November was driven by the performance of the underlying markets (+EUR41.6 billion), while estimated net inflows contributed (+EUR14.3 billion) to the assets under management.”
