US equity ETFs

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Assets under management in ETPs and ETFs globally have surpassed the $5trn mark after a record-breaking month of inflows in January 2018, with equity ETFs seeing particularly strong inflows before the sell-off that cooled some of the heat in the stock market at the end of the month.

  • European equity ETFs have seen subdued demand in the first month of 2018, having suffered net outflows of nearly €3.5bn, while US equities were the stars of the show, taking in almost €40bn during January.

  • US investors have started selling their exposures to European equity ETFs as a strengthening dollar is drawing attention to domestic assets, while European counterparts continue to buy into local equities. Elsewhere, US financials are on track for the biggest annual inflows since 2013.
