according to ETFGI’s August 2017 preliminary global ETF and ETP industry insights report.
 

The Global ETF/ETP industry had 7,019 ETFs/ETPs, with 13,199 listings, assets of US$4.800 trillion, from 331 providers listed on 70 exchanges in 56 countries.

ETFs and ETPs listed globally gathered a record US$42.43 Bn in net inflows in August marking 43 consecutive months of net inflows and a record level of US$433.69 Bn in year to date net inflows which is more than double the US$216.59 Bn in net inflows at this point last year and the US$43Bn more than the US$390.61 Bn net inflows gathered in all 2016.

 “August is typically a challenging month for equity markets with the average loss over the past 20 years for the S+P 500 at 1.3%. This year the S+P 500 was up 0.31% in August and 11.93% year to date, MSCI ACW was up 0.44% and 15.48% YTD while MSCI EM was up 2.27% for August and 28.59% YTD (all prices in USD). Storms and political risks remain a focus for investors - the ability of the Trump administration to move forward on policy goals and hearings on Capitol Hill, Brexit negotiations, and North Korea is still an area of concern.” According to Deborah Fuhr, managing partner at ETFGI.

Equity ETFs/ETPs gathered a level of US$23.47 Bn in net inflows in August, bringing year to date net inflows to a record level of US$295.67 Bn, which is much greater than the net inflows of US$74.25 Bn over the same period last year and more than the US$234.44 Bn gathered in all 2016.

Fixed income ETFs and ETPs have gathered a level of US$11.15 Bn in net inflows in August, growing year to date net inflows to a record level of US$107.28 Bn, which is greater than the same period last year which saw net inflows of US$93.56 Bn.  

Commodity ETFs/ETPs accumulated net inflows of US$1.39 Bn in August. Year to date, net inflows are at US$5.64 Bn, which is significantly less than the net inflows of US$33.68 Bn gathered over the same period last year.

iShares gathered the largest net ETF/ETP inflows in August with US$13.68 Bn, followed by Vanguard with US$10.00 Bn and Nomura AM with US$4.46 Bn net inflows.

YTD, iShares gathered the largest net ETF/ETP inflows with US$172.63 Bn which is above the US$137.90 Bn gathered in all of 2016, followed by Vanguard with US$101.79 Bn and Nomura AM with US$18.09 Bn and Schwab ETFs with US$18.04Bn in net inflows.
