Third-Party Research

  • Discover the findings from Risk.net’s first global exchange-traded fund (ETF) trading survey, commissioned by Jane Street: insights into how institutional investors approach ETF trading, the counterparties they work with and how they evaluate liquidity.

  • US-listed ETFs have gathered more than $28 billion in September – a new annual high – despite the Federal Reserve hinting at interest rate hikes – a move intended to return to normal monetary policy and ward off another Great Depression.

  • US-based ETF investors are withdrawing en masse from currency-hedged international funds, despite advice to the contrary. The three largest currency-hedged ETFs in the US have seen combined outflows of around $3.5 billion so far this year as the US dollar has declined more than 9% against rival currencies.

  • Inflows into Europe-listed exchange traded products (ETFs) have considerably slowed down in August after a record 2017 so far, with all categories suffering subdued demand or even outflows.
