Stock markets across Asia sank as concerns about global growth continue to increase. The region’s benchmarks suffered from their biggest plunge of the year, in the wake of the Chinese shares. The daily average returns of the 14 ETFs included in the Asian Ex Japan Stocks segment closed at -2,07% on Friday, March 8th. This negative performance partially cancels the effect of the February rally which brought the year-to-date cumulated returns above 11%. In the same time, investors withdrew their assets from the primary market with $ 82M of cumulated daily outflows; the largest since the beginning of the year. This segment represents $ 11 bn of assets under management.
