  • Investors have been less keen on exchange traded funds lately as a result of market volatility in some of the most popular investment areas, with total assets invested in the sector globally decreasing by a record $180.1 billion in February, according to ETFGI.

  • The VIX index, which measures equity market volatility, has been at ‘exceptionally’ low levels since the start of the year, but ETF Securities warns this is not factoring in market risks that could cause a sell-off in the near future. The firm suggests volatility should be at much higher levels than the index is indicating.
