Global Launches

ETF Express newsletter 17.06.22

This week we have research from Germany’s Scalable Capital which found that retail investors, investing online, prefer to use ETFs and to use savings plans. 

“The majority of our customers invest by the book and rely on diversification and long-term asset accumulation with ETFs,” says Erik Podzuweit, co-founder and CEO of Scalable Capital, describing one of the key findings.

“The top nine most popular names are all globally diversified ETFs; the first stock only places 10th with Apple. The investment behaviour of young investors is particularly striking. Our data shows that they have even more ETFs in their portfolios than the older age groups, thus investing even more ‘sensibly’. Generation Z is not a generation of ‘gamblers’, but of responsible and forward-looking savers.”

We also have an interview with Todd Sohn of Strategas who says: “ETFs are the best vehicle in the industry right now,” Sohn says. “They are low cost, especially plain, vanilla passive funds and you know what the ingredients are. The transparency factor is so important nowadays with the way that markets move and the sheer amount of product out there and then there is also the liquidity – you can get in and out in seconds.”

In this time of volatile markets, ETFs seem to be continuing to gain assets. Latest global inflow data reveals that the global ETFs industry gathered net inflows of USD80.28 billion during May, bringing year-to-date net inflows to USD417.87 billion.
