Global ETP flows of $379.5bn represented 13% organic growth and exceeded last year’s record of $350.7bn, fueled by record flows for fixed income, a second-half surge in U.S. equities and renewed appetite for broad emerging markets equities
Fixed income flows set a new annual record of $115.0bn, driven by new highs for investment grade corporate bonds, U.S. TIPS and emerging markets debt funds
U.S. equity flows rallied in the second half of 2016 led by large caps with $82.3bn and boosted by new annual flow records in small cap and dividend funds
Broad emerging markets equities gathered $26.7bn in 2016, breaking a three-year streak of outflows, lifted by a leveling in commodities prices and a more stable U.S. dollar in the period before the U.S. presidential election
