What is the size and scale of your business at the moment?

Amundi ETF is the leading European ETF provider1, with over €200 billion2 in assets under management, offering 300+ ETFs3 across all asset classes, geographies, as well as sectors and themes. We are leading the ESG transformation and have the largest European range of responsible ETFs.1

What trends have you seen over the past year?

Last year the European ETF market recorded its second-fastest growth in net new assets since 2018. Fixed income ETFs enjoyed record-inflows (€61.5bn) and ESG adoption also continued apace, representing 30% of Net New Assets over the year. We saw continued uptake of ETFs by institutional and individual investors, one of the most important drivers of market growth.

What plans do you have for growing your business over the coming year?

Alongside expanding institutional coverage, we are committed to enhancing retail access through ETFs in managed-portfolio solutions and digital distribution, via online banks, roboadvisors and trading platforms.

Our product innovation remains client-driven, exemplified by the recent launch of the Amundi Prime All Country World UCITS ETF, which provides cost-efficient, highly-diversified equity exposure across both developed and emerging markets.

Increasing the proportion of responsible investment (RI) ETFs to reach 40% of our range by 2025 is a strategic aim and we are on track to achieve this. Further demonstrating our RI commitment is ShareAction’s Voting Matters 2023 report where Amundi ranked first among ETF providers in Europe.3

Where do you see the ETF industry going in terms of products over the coming year?

Structural drivers already at play, including regulatory initiatives, new distribution channels such as online platforms, and the ESG revolution, will likely continue supporting growth in 2024.

Fixed income markets, which are in an observation zone around central bank policies, will likely still attract significant flows at a time when economic activity deteriorates.

Within equities, ETFs are an optimal tool to gain market access while providing control and flexibility to adjust asset allocation very quickly.

Indices such as equal weight may attract investors seeking resilience and greater diversification.

Climate transition and sustainability considerations will undoubtedly continue to be key drivers of the European ETF market.  

How will your firm be able to support them?

By continuing to provide the must-have building blocks for a diversified asset allocation. We strive to be the partner of choice for ETF investors. Our trustworthiness in stewardship and voting is increasingly becoming key for responsible investors, beyond exposures.

Innovation is also core to our product development. We continually engage with our clients to identify new needs and ways to address them. This also means supporting clients in their ESG transformation with the right products and solutions.

Why do you think you won this award?

This prestigious award win is a reflection of our unwavering commitment to providing our clients with innovative solutions that address their evolving requirements. A client-centric service model is key: Clients highly value our capacity to engage and partner to meet their specific needs, and we will continue to do so to better understand their unique circumstances, challenges, and aspirations.
