Japanese equity ETFs saw strong demand from European investors in October, although overall global flows into the asset category were negative as Asian buyers made redemptions.
ETFs continued to enjoy strong inflows in March, adding to the record sales figures of the previous two months to make Q1 2017 the best quarter on record in terms of inflows. Developed market equities took in the bulk of the money.
The monthly overview of the European-domiciled ETP industry has shown investors have become bullish on markets, with continued inflows into equities in favour of fixed income. Overall, European-listed funds have seen the strongest monthly inflows since August 2015.
