Assets invested in the European ETFs/ETPs industry have increased by 3.8%, from US$924.71 billion at the end of September, to a record US$959.96 billion, according to ETFGI's October 2019 European ETFs and ETPs industry landscape insights report, an annual paid-for research subscription service. (All dollar values in USD unless otherwise noted.)


Highlights

•                    Assets invested in the European ETFs/ETPs industry climbed to a record $959.96 billion at the end of October

•                    Assets invested in the European ETFs/ETPs industry increased 3.8% in October

•                    During October 2019, ETFs/ETPs listed in Europe attracted $13.46 billion in net inflows

•                    Year-to-date net inflows are $88.89 billion which is nearly double the $47.71 billion in 2019

 

“The Fed rate cut and the looming hope for an agreement between US-China shaped a favourable investment environment in equity markets globally which led the S&P 500® to gain 3.2% during October. International markets also gained, with the S&P Developed Ex-U.S. and the S&P Emerging BMI both up 4%.  The better performance of the Equity Markets reflected into a new record high of $959.96 billion and higher inflows of ETFs/ETPs exposed to Equity Indices rather than Fixed Income.” According to Deborah Fuhr, managing partner, founder and owner of ETFGI.
