LONDONNovember 25, 2020 — ETFGI, a leading independent research and consultancy firm covering trends in the global ETFs/ETPs ecosystem, reported today that ETFs and ETPs listed in US gained net inflows of US$33.36 billion during October, bringing year-to-date net inflows to US$333.23 billion which is higher than the US$223.14 billion net inflows gathered at this point last year as well as greater than the US$330.24 billion gathered in all of 2019.  Assets invested in the US ETFs/ETPs industry have decreased by 0.8%, from US$4.73 trillion at the end of September, to US$4.69 trillion, according to ETFGI's October 2020 US ETFs and ETPs industry landscape insights report, the monthly report which is part of an annual paid-for research subscription service. (All dollar values in USD unless otherwise noted.)

Highlights

“During October, the S&P 500 decreased by 2.66% due to the uncertainty of US election while the pandemic still rising around the world. Regarding US companies, the negative movement of oil prices leaded the energy stocks down, although the four tech giants remain in positive sign. Developed markets outside the U.S. fell 3.56% during October, with Japan (24.7%), UK (11.2%) and Canada (8.5%) were the leaders. However, Emerging markets reported positive return of 2.04% through October.” According to Deborah Fuhr, managing partner, founder and owner of ETFGI.
