ETFGI reports that ETFs and ETPs listed in Europe gathered net inflows of US$5.06 Bn during November 2018

LONDON — December 17, 2018 — ETFGI, a leading independent research and consultancy firm on trends in the global ETF/ETP ecosystem, reported today that ETFs and ETPs listed in Europe gathered net new assets of US$5.06 billion during November 2018, marking the 50th consecutive month of net inflows. (All dollar values in USD unless otherwise noted.)
 
Highlights

  • ETFs and ETPs listed in Europe gathered net new assets of $5.06 Bn during November 2018, marking the 50th consecutive month of net inflows.
  • Equity products gathered the largest net inflows during November, while active ETFs/ETPs experienced the largest net outflows.
  • ETF/ETP assets have increased by 1.3% during November to $794 Bn.

 
“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 FM bounced back from the October fall, finishing up 4.61% and 1.94% respectively, softening year-to-date declines to 11.2% and 9.0%”, according to Deborah Fuhr, managing partner and a founder of ETFGI.
 
According to ETFGI’s November 2018 Europe ETF and ETP industry insights report, an annual paid-for research subscription service, equity products gathered the largest net inflows during November with $2.98 Bn, followed by fixed income ETFs/ETPs with $2.39 Bn, while active ETFs/ETPs experienced the largest net outflows with $518 Mn.
