LONDONOctober 28, 2020 — ETFGI, a leading independent research and consultancy firm covering trends in the global ETFs and ETPs ecosystem, reported today that ETFs and ETPs listed in Europe gathered net inflows of US$8.93 billion during September, bringing year-to-date net inflows to US$69.50 billion which is less than the US$75.37 billion gathered through Q3 in 2019. Assets invested in the European ETFs and ETPs industry have decreased by 2.5%, from US$1.14 billion at the end of August, to US$1.11 trillion, according to ETFGI's September 2020 European ETFs and ETPs industry landscape insights report, the monthly report which is part of annual paid-for research subscription service. (All dollar values in USD unless otherwise noted.)


Highlights   

  • ETFs and ETPs listed in Europe gathered net inflows of $8.93 Bn during September, bringing YTD net inflows to $69.50 Bn which is less than the $75.37 Bn gathered through Q3 in 2019.    
  • Assets invested in ETFs and ETPs listed in Europe are $1.11 trillion at the end of Q3 which is the second highest on record.
  • Commodity ETFs/ETPs gathered year-to-date net inflows of $17.83 billion, much higher than the $7.21 billion had attracted by this time last year.
  • $8.15 billion or most of the net inflows went into equity ETFs and ETPs in September.
     

“The S&P 500 declined 3.8% in September, with concerns over back-to-school (and resulting COVID cases), U.S. elections and stimulus talks. Strong prior month gains boosted the index higher to close up 8.9% for Q3.  Global equities declined 3.1% in September, as measured by the S&P Global BMI. Despite the monthly decline, the global benchmark managed to finish Q3 up 8.1% Q3 and up 0.7% YTD. Emerging markets, declined 2.2% in September but closed up 9.0% for Q3.”  According to Deborah Fuhr, managing partner, founder and owner of ETFGI.
