Also in Europe, with 9.6 billion euros of inflows in November and 91.1 billion since January 2017, ETFs remain popular.
Investor appetite for equity markets during the month was undeniable, both at European and global levels.
On the old continent, equity ETFs garnered 6.8 billion euros, while across all markets, they saw 43.4 billion euros of inflows overall.
In Europe, inflows were divided up between different equities markets, with US equity ETFs ahead (+1.8 billion), followed by ETFs exposed to Europe (673 million into European ETFs and 647 million into Eurozone ETFs).
In the bond markets, ETFs continued to benefit from solid flows during the month, at 9.5 billion euros globally.
Of this, 2.5 billion euros came from Europe; sovereign bonds continue to be somewhat disliked by European investors (-203 million), who prefer to opt for corporate bonds (+1.5 billion).
