Global ETF and ETP assets as of the end of October 2019

“The Fed rate cut and the looming hope for an agreement between US-China shaped a favourable investment environment in equity markets globally which led the S&P 500® to gain 3.2% during October. International markets also gained, with the S&P Developed Ex-U.S. and the S&P Emerging BMI both up 4%.  The better performance of the Equity Markets reflected into a new record high of $5.96 trillion and higher inflows of ETFs/ETPs exposed to Equity Indices rather than Fixed Income.” According to Deborah Fuhr, managing partner, founder and owner of ETFGI.

At the end of October 2019, the Global ETF/ETP industry had 7,846 ETFs/ETPs, with 15,752 listings from 428 providers on 69 exchanges in 58 countries.

In October 2019, ETFs/ETPs gathered net inflows of $50.82 billion.

Fixed income ETFs/ETPs listed Globally attracted net inflows of $19.72 billion in October, bringing net inflows for 2019 to $191.02 billion, considerably greater than the $72.03 billion in net inflows fixed income products had attracted by the end of October 2018.

Equity ETFs/ETPs listed Globally gathered net inflows of $22.87 billion in October, bringing net inflows for 2019 to $158.26 billion, substantially less than the $269.29 billion in net inflows equity products had attracted by the end of October 2018.

Commodity ETFs/ETPs gathered $343 million in net inflows bringing net inflows to $2.71 billion for 2019, which is greater than the $94 million in net outflows suffered through October 2018.

Substantial inflows can be attributed to the top 20 ETFs by net new assets, which collectively gathered $23.11 billion in October, the Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF (VTI US) gathered $2.53 billion alone.
