Highlights

  • Assets in Global ETFs and ETPs industry reached a new milestone of $6.37 trillion at the end of January.
  • The $67.15 Bn in net inflows gathered in January is the 8th highest monthly inflow on record and significantly larger than the $17.23 Bn gathered in January 2019.
  • Year-to-date net inflows of $67.15 Bn are the 2nd highest behind only January 2018 with $105.59 Bn.

"During January the S&P 500 lost 0.04% as markets were affected by the Coronavirus (nCoV) outbreak and offset any optimism on the trade talks with China.  Global equities as measured by the S&P Global BMI were also down 1.33% and the S&P Emerging BMI declined 4.3% as well.” According to Deborah Fuhr, managing partner, founder and owner of ETFGI.
