Press Release

LONDONFebruary 21, 2018 — ETFGI, a leading independent research and consultancy firm covering trends in the global ETF/ETP ecosystem, reported today that actively managed ETFs and ETPs gathered net inflows of US$1.48 billion in January. Assets invested in actively managed ETFs/ETPs finished the month up 4.60%, from US$106.90 billion at the end of December, to US$111.83 billion, according to ETFGI's January 2019 Active ETF and ETP industry landscape insights report, an annual paid-for research subscription service. (All dollar values in USD unless otherwise noted.)

Highlights

  • Assets invested in Actively managed ETFs/ETPs reach US$111.83 Bn in January, the highest on record.

 

  • Assets invested in actively managed ETFs/ETPs rise 4.60% in January.

 

  • Actively managed funds in the US and Canada continue to grow in popularity.

 

“In January, equity markets rebounded from Q4 when global equities suffered steep declines amid persistent worries over trade and economic growth. Fed chair Powell revised his stance on where he believes the neutral rate of interest lies, easing fears of a dramatic and painful tightening cycle. Energy’s decline during the Q4 rout subdued inflation in developed economies taking hiking pressure off central banks while provided stimulus to consumers and businesses, giving stronger core metrics. The S&P 500 finished January up 8.01%, the best January since 1987, while the S&P Topix 150 gained 7.26% and the S&P Europe 350 gained 6.23%. Emerging and Frontier markets were up 7.77% and 4.61% respectively, hampered by dollar strength.” according to Deborah Fuhr, managing partner and founder of ETFGI.

At the end of January 2019, actively managed ETFs/ETPs had 640 ETFs/ETPs, from 133 providers listed on 20 exchanges in 15 countries. Following net inflows of $1.48 Bn and market moves during the month, assets invested in actively managed ETFs/ETPs increased by 4.60% from $106.90 Bn at the end of December, to $111.83 Bn.

Equity focused actively managed ETFs/ETPs attracted net inflows of $426.38 Mn in January, substantially less than the $1.15 Bn in net inflows equity products had attracted by the end of January 2018. Fixed income focused, actively managed ETFs/ETPs attracted net inflows of $1.22 Bn in January, considerably less than the $1.64 Bn in net inflows fixed income products had attracted by the end of January 2018.

 

Substantial inflows can be attributed to the top 20 ETFs/ETPs's by net new assets, which collectively gathered $2.47 Bn in January, the PIMCO US Dollar Short Maturity ETF (MINT LN) gathered
$735.99 Mn alone.
