ETFs and ETPs listed in Europe gathered net new assets of $5.06 Bn during November 2018, marking the 50th consecutive month of net inflows.
Equity products gathered the largest net inflows during November, while active ETFs/ETPs experienced the largest net outflows.
“While trade talks continue to make noise in the headlines, the very real prospect of slowing global growth appears to be filtering into market sentiment. A seemingly more reposed approach to monetary policy along with the China-US trade truce provided enough of a tailwind to lift US markets to finish in the green by the end of November, with the S&P 500 gaining 2.04% over the month bringing the year-to-date gain to 5.11%. Apart from the Eurozone, where various domestic issues continue to dominate, most developed markets closed the month with marginal gains. The S&P developed ex-US BMI was up 0.17% in November with year-to-date declines of 9.66%. EM and FM bounced back from the October fall, finishing up 4.61% and 1.94% respectively, softening year-to-date declines to 11.2% and 9.0%”, according to Deborah Fuhr, managing partner and a founder of ETFGI.
According to ETFGI’s November 2018 Europe ETF and ETP industry insights report, an annual paid-for research subscription service, equity products gathered the largest net inflows during November with $2.98 Bn, followed by fixed income ETFs/ETPs with $2.39 Bn, while active ETFs/ETPs experienced the largest net outflows with $518 Mn.
