These led, in combination with the positive performance of the underlying markets, to an increase in assets under management in the European ETF industry from €795.6 bn as of September 30, 2019, to a new record high of €809.2 bn at the end of October.

The increase of €13.6 bn for October was driven by estimated net inflows (+€11.1 bn), while the performance of the underlying markets contributed €2.6 bn to the increase in assets under management.

It was not surprising equity funds (€547.1 bn) held the majority of assets, followed by bond funds (€228.1 bn), commodity products (€21.9 bn), alternative UCITS products (€6.7 bn), money market funds (€3.2 bn), mixed-assets funds (€2.1 bn), and “other” funds (€0.1 bn).

The inflows in ETFs were driven by equity funds (+€7.0 bn), followed by bond ETFs (+€4.3 bn), commodity ETFs (+€0.3 bn), and mixed-assets ETFs (+€0.1 bn).

On the other side of the spectrum, money market ETFs (-€0.5 bn) faced the highest estimated outflows for the month, bettered by alternative UCITS ETFs (-€0.01 bn) and “other” ETFs (-€0.01 bn).
