Assets invested in the European ETF/ETP industry finished the month up 2.60%, from US$859.51 billion at the end of March to US$882.20 billion, according to ETFGI's April 2019 European ETF and ETP industry landscape insights report, an annual paid-for research subscription service.

Highlights

  • Assets invested in the European ETF/ETP industry reach $882.20 Bn in April 2019, the highest on record.

  • April 11th marked the 19th Anniversary of the listing of the first ETFs in Europe.
  • Assets invested in the European ETF/ETP industry have risen 14.9% year-to-date.

“Markets appear to have returned to the relative calm they had grown accustomed to over the past few years. Returns for developed indices were higher in April compared to March. The S&P 500 finished April up 4.05%, with year-to-date returns of 13.7%, marking its best quarter since ‘09. The S&P Europe 350 fell -1.42% in March, as economic data from the region continues to send mixed signals, bringing year-to-date returns to 11.85%. The Topix 150 in Japan was up 1.14% in April, bringing year-to-date returns of 3.77%. Emerging & Frontier returns continued to outpace developed markets. The S&P Emerging BMI and Frontier BMI finished March up 1.11% and -0.87%%, bringing year to date returns to 6.12% and 9.87%, respectively.” according to Deborah Fuhr, managing partner and founder of ETFGI.

At the end of April 2019, the European ETF/ETP industry had 2,330 ETFs/ETPs, from 69 providers listed on 29 exchanges.
