ETFGI reported today ETFs and ETPs listed in the United States gathered net inflows of US$27.99 Bn in July marking the 17th consecutive month of positive net new asset flows.
Year to date, net inflows stand at US$275.38 Bn which is more than double the net inflows of US$112.16 Bn accumulated at this point last year and nearly the same as the US$278.74 Bn gathered in all of 2016, according to ETFGI’s July 2017 global ETF and ETP industry insights report an annual paid for research subscription service.
At the end of July 2017, the US ETF/ETP industry had 2,038 ETFs/ETPs, with 2,038 listings, assets of US$3,055 Bn, from 114 providers listed on 3 exchanges.
“Most equity markets continued to see gains in July. The S&P 500 gained 2% with Telecom and Info Tech the top performing sectors, up 6% and 4%, respectively. International equities, and especially emerging markets, were up 3% and 6%, respectively. Political risks remain a focus for investors - the ability of the Trump administration to move forward on policy goals and hearings on Capitol Hill, Brexit negotiations, and North Korea is still an area of concern.” According to Deborah Fuhr, managing partner at ETFGI.

Fixed income ETFs and ETPs experienced net inflows of US$11.13 Bn in July, growing year to date net inflows to US$73.00 Bn, which is greater than the same period last year which saw net inflows of US$53.93 Bn.
Commodity ETFs/ETPs saw net outflows of US$3.93 Bn in July. Year to date, net outflows are at US$3.43 Bn, below the net inflows of US$19.76 Bn gathered over the same period last year.
