ETF flows already  at an all-time annual high.....

By Marlène Hassine Konqui, Head of ETF Research and Kristo Durbaku, ETF Research Analyst


 ETF flows accelerated again in October as risk stayed firmly on and developed market equities  enjoyed the benefits. Flows into ETFs have already exceeded the previous record high for a  year, set in 2015.

What happened last month?

ETF flows accelerated again in October with  inflows of EUR7bn vs. EUR6.8 last month

Yearly flows at EUR78.2bn are already  significantly above the previous record  of EUR71bn

Equity flows slowed slightly  € 5.8bn

Fixed income flows  nearly doubled €1.2bn

Very little happened  for Commodities -€0.03 bn

Good month for Smart Beta,  notably value factor €0.4bn

Asia: all about Abe

 We saw the highest inflows this year into Asian equities (€ 1.2bn) after Abe’s  re-election and positive economic news. Year-to-date flows now stand at €3.3bn, which is close to 2015’s record high.

The flows were mainly concentrated  on hedged indices given the yen should  continue to depreciate from here as Japan is now the only country still pursuing a strong easing monetary policy.

What does it all mean?

ETF flows at an all-time annual high

ETFs on the rise €78bn

Total AUM is up 21% since 2016 ETFs on the rise €625bn
