“While trade talks continue to make noise in the headlines, the very real prospect of slowing global growth appears to be filtering into market sentiment. A seemingly more reposed approach to monetary policy along with the China-US trade truce provided enough of a tailwind to lift US markets to finish in the green by the end of November, with the S&P 500 gaining 2.04% over the month bringing the year-to-date gain to 5.11%. Apart from the Eurozone, where various domestic issues continue to dominate, most developed markets closed the month with marginal gains, the S&P developed ex-US BMI was up 0.17% in November with year-to-date declines of 9.66%. EM and Frontier markets bounced back from the October fall, finishing up 4.61% and 1.94% respectively, softening year-to-date declines to 11.15% and 8.95%”  according to Deborah Fuhr, managing partner and a founder of ETFGI.

At the end of November 2018, the Asia Pacific (ex-Japan) ETF/ETP industry had 1,379 ETFs/ETPs, with 1,532 listings, assets of $191 Bn, from 139 providers listed on 17 exchanges.
