  • Assets invested in the US ETF/ETP industry reached $3.96 Trillion.
  • ​​​Asset invested in the US ETF/ETP industry increased 6.4% in June.
  • June 2019, ETFs/ETPs listed in US saw US$48.62 Bn in net inflows.

“Global equities rebounded from prior month losses, with 45 of 49 countries in S&P’s global index posting gains. The S&P 500 gained 7.1% in June (up 4.3% Q2 and up 18.7% H1), bolstered by a dovish Federal Reserve sentiment and optimism surrounding a potential trade deal during the G20 talks contributed to a rebound in U.S. equities with the S&P 500 finishing near all-time high. This trend was followed in the Eurozone and Japanese markets” according to Deborah Fuhr, managing partner and founder of ETFGI.
