ETFGI reports today that ETFs and ETPs listed in Europe suffered net outflows of US$7.86 billion in August 2019

 

LONDONSeptember 13, 2019 — ETFGI, a leading independent research and consultancy firm covering trends in the global ETF/ETP ecosystem, reported today that ETFs and ETPs listed in Europe suffered net outflows of US$7.86 billion in August, bringing year-to-date net inflows to US$54.89 billion. Assets invested in the European ETF/ETP industry have decreased by 2.2%, from US$910.34 billion at the end of July, to US$890.21 billion, according to ETFGI's August 2019 European ETF and ETP industry landscape insights report, an annual paid-for research subscription service. (All dollar values in USD unless otherwise noted.)

At the end of August 2019, the European ETF/ETP industry had 2,351 ETFs/ETPs, with 8,662 listings, from 68 providers listed on 30 exchanges in 25 countries.
 

Highlights

  • Assets invested in the European ETF/ETP industry slipped to $890.21 Bn at the end of August   
  • Assets invested in the European ETF/ETP industry decreased by 2.2% in August.
  • During August 2019, ETFs/ETPs listed in Europe suffered $7.86 Bn in net outflows.

 

“The S&P 500® slid 1.6% during August, which can be partially attributed to both the growing tensions stemming from the US/China trade talks, or lack thereof, and the sentiment placed on the inverted US yield curve. From an International standpoint, the S&P Developed Ex-U.S. BMI declined 2.5%, with the biggest decline coming out of Hong Kong (-8.0%), driven by recent protests. The S&P Emerging BMI fell 4.5% during the month, with only one riser, Egypt, up 10.5%.” According to Deborah Fuhr, managing partner, founder and owner of ETFGI.
