ETFGI reports ETFs and ETPs listed in Latin America gather net inflows of US$635 million during December 2018

Press Release

LONDONJanuary 29, 2018 — ETFGI, a leading independent research and consultancy firm covering trends in the global ETF/ETP ecosystem, reported today that ETFs and ETPs listed in Latin America gathered net inflows of US$635 million during December. During the month, total assets invested in the Latin American ETF and ETP industry increased 8.15%, from US$7.81 billion at the end of November, to US$8.44 billion, according to ETFGI’s December 2018 Latin American ETF and ETP industry landscape insights report, an annual paid-for research subscription service.    (All dollar values in USD unless otherwise noted.) 

 

Highlights

  • Total Assets invested in ETFs and ETPs listed in Latin America increase 8.15% to $8.44 Bn in December. 
  • Year-to-date, assets have increased 24.21% from $6.80 Bn at the end of 2017.
  • December 2018 marks 2nd highest net inflow on record, rivalled only by $688 Mn in March 2013.

 

“The end of 2018 saw the trend in developed markets reverse, and although arguably predictable, the severity left many pundits scratching their heads. This end of year stress has widely been attributed to the disruption caused by trade disputes feeding into economic data, and the view policy makers are not going to be quite as accommodating as initially expected. The S&P 500 returned -9.03% during December, and down -4.38% for 2018. Developed markets ex-US fell -4.62% during December, led by Japan and Canada, bringing the yearly return to -13.21%. Relatively speaking, EM and FM fared the month better, returning -2.68% and -3.15%, finishing 2018 -13.53% and -11.82%, respectively” according to Deborah Fuhr, managing partner and founder of ETFGI.

 

At the end of December 2018, the Latin American ETF/ETP industry had 48 ETFs/ETPs, with 1,196 listings, assets of $8.44 Bn, from 36 providers listed on 5 exchanges. Following net inflows of $635 Mn and market moves during the month, assets invested in ETFs/ETPs listed in Latin America increased by 8.15%, from $7.81 Bn at the end of November 2018, to $8.44 Bn.
