Xtrackers ETPs take 20% of 2018 European market YTD inflows.

Solid second place position in overall managed European ETP assets.

DWS’s Xtrackers took more net inflows than any other European exchange-traded product (ETP) provider in the first five months of 2018, according to data provided by ETFGI, an independent industry research consultant.

Xtrackers exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and exchange-traded commodities (ETCs) registered USD 6.4 billion in positive net inflows for 2018 to the end of May, the data shows. This is followed by UBS ETFs with USD 6.2 billion and iShares with USD 4.3 billion*.

Flows into Xtrackers ETFs and ETCs therefore account for 20% of 2018 European market year-to-date aggregate ETP inflows. Xtrackers have a market share of 11% of the European ETP market by assets under management (AUM). Xtrackers ranks a solid second in Europe by AUM, well head of the third-placed asset manager, with a difference of over USD 14 billion.

“For our Xtrackers to have a market-leading position in 2018 is a testament to the quality of our index tracking products,” said Thorsten Michalik, member of the management board of DWS and Co-Head of the asset manager’s Global Coverage Group.
