AUM in the European ETF industry to double to EUR2.5 trn before the end of 2030: Refinitiv Lipper


Refinitiv Lipper’s European ETF Industry Yearbook 2022 has been published revealing that ETF promoters in Europe experienced estimated net inflows of EUR80.2 billion for 2022.

The firm writes that assets under management in the European ETF industry stood at EUR1,242.2 billion) at the end of December 2022, and 6.18 per cent of the assets under management were invested in ESG-related ETFs.

Equity ETFs (+EUR51.1 billion) posted the highest estimated net inflows in the European ETF industry for 2022, according to the firm, and ESG-related ETFs gathered 65.49 per cent of the overall flows in the European ETF industry for 2022.

The best-selling Lipper global classification for 2022 was Equity Global (+EUR27.2 billion), followed by Bond USD Government (+EUR18.4 billion) and Equity US (+EUR12.2 billion).

iShares was the best-selling ETF promoter in Europe for 2022 (+EUR44.0 billion), ahead of Vanguard (+EUR11.6 billion) and Invesco (+EUR5.3 billion). The ETF promoters in Europe launched 374 new products (all share classes), the report says.

Total Expense Ratios (TERs) for all asset types stood on the same level as at the end of 2021.

Refinitiv Lipper predicts that assets under management in the European ETF industry will double to EUR2.5 trillion before the end of 2030.

Detlef Glow, Head of EMEA Research at Refinitiv Lipper, says: “The European ETF industry will continue to grow on an above average rate compared to the overall fund industry in Europe. A Europe-wide adoption of ETFs by retail investors will, in combination with new fit-for-purpose conventional as well as ESG-related bond and equity products, be the core drivers for the future growth of the European ETF industry.

“But a possible approval of active ETFs would be a game changer for the whole fund industry ecosystem in Europe and will make the forecast of a doubling in AUM obsolete, as in this case the growth rate of the AUM might be much higher.”
