  • European investors are showing more interest in ETFs this year, with flows into European-listed products so far this year to the end of July breaking past the record net sales seen during the whole of 2016.

  • ETFs investing in UK equities are down 2.9% over the last month after the fall of Sterling currency, lower-than-expected inflation data and the Bank of England’s hesitation to raise interest rates one year after Brexit.

  • The attitudes of European and US investors towards gold ETFs have not been this different since 2013, as EMEA-domiciled gold ETPs have attracted positive flows every month so far this year, while US offerings have suffered outflows.

  • ETF investors should look to developed or emerging small caps excluding the US as domestic smaller companies are not benefitting from foreign growth and dollar weakness like their larger counterparts.
