LONDONAugust 14, 2020 — ETFGI, a leading independent research and consultancy firm covering trends in the global ETFs/ETPs ecosystem, reported today that assets in ETFs/ETPs listed in Europe reach a new record of US$1.08 trillion at the end of July.  ETFs and ETPs listed in Europe reported net inflows of US$17.47 billion during July, bringing year-to-date net inflows to US$50.14 billion which is less than the US$62.65 billion gathered at this point last year.  Assets invested in the European ETFs/ETPs industry have increased by 7.7%, from US$1.01 billion at the end of June, to US$1.08 trillion, according to ETFGI's July 2020 European ETFs and ETPs industry landscape insights report, an annual paid-for research subscription service.

Highlights        

  • Assets invested in ETFs/ETPs listed in Europe reach a new record of $1.08 trillion at the end of July.
  • ETFs and ETPs listed in Europe reported net inflows of US$17.47 billion during July.
  • Year-to-date net inflows are $50.14 Bn which is less than the $62.65 Bn gathered at this point last year. 
  • Equity ETFs/ETPs listed in Europe attracted the biggest part of net inflows during July with $9.48 billion.

The S&P 500 gained 5.6% in July, aided by the U.S. Federal Reserve stimulus and strong earnings.   International markets also gained, with Developed Ex-U.S. and Emerging up 3.0% and 8.5%, respectively. In the developed markets Scandinavian countries benefited most, led by Norway (up 10.8%) and Sweden (up 10.1%); while Japan (down 2.0%) was the sole negative performer among developed countries. Dollar weakness contributed toward the positive momentum in Emerging markets where 19 of 25 countries gained, led by Brazil (up 14.4%) and Pakistan (up 13.4%), while Taiwan (up 12.1%) neared an all-time high.” According to Deborah Fuhr, managing partner, founder and owner of ETFGI.
