  • A strengthening US dollar has contributed to a reversal of fortunes for emerging market equity ETFs after a strong run, with Turkey and Latin America among those hit the hardest by the recent sell-off.

  • While US-based investors have been fleeing equity ETFs throughout February, especially in their home market, European buyers have remained resilient despite the volatility. However, overall equity ETFs have seen over €4bn of outflows during the month, as a general risk off mood has spread across markets.

  • Emerging market equity ETFs have amassed close to $50 billion year to date despite geopolitical turmoil brewing in the Middle East and anticipated interest rate hikes from the US Federal Reserve.

  • 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.
