ETFGI reports that assets in ETFs/ETPs listed globally are again over the 6 trillion US dollar milestone at the end of May 2020

LONDON —June 16, 2020 — ETFGI, a leading independent research and consultancy firm covering trends in the global ETFs and ETPs ecosystem, reported today that assets invested in the global ETFs/ETPs industry have increased by 4.7%, from US$5.84 trillion at the end of April 2020, to US$6.10 trillion at the end of May. ETFs and ETPs listed globally gathered net inflows of US$48 billion during May, bringing year-to-date net inflows to US$225.41 billion which is significantly higher than the US$140.54 billion gathered at this point last year, according to ETFGI's May 2020 Global ETFs and ETPs industry landscape insights report, an annual paid-for research subscription service. (All dollar values in USD unless otherwise noted.)
 

Highlights

 

“The S&P 500 gained 4.8% in May and remains only 5.0% down from its level at the beginning of the year, as markets anticipated relief from a COVID-19-driven economic slowdown. Developed markets outside the U.S. were also up 4.8% for the month with Sweden (up 9.9%) and Germany (up 9.2%) the top performers, while Hong Kong (down 7.7%), was the only market to be down for the month due to recent political turmoil. Emerging markets lagged during the month, gaining 1.3% as the economic impact of virus shutdowns remains somewhat more uncertain compared to developed regions.” According to Deborah Fuhr, managing partner, founder and owner of ETFGI.
