  • Total Assets for actively managed ETFs and ETPs listed globally rise 3.11% to reach new high $109 Bn in November.
  • Net new assets gathered by actively managed ETFs and ETPs listed globally were $3.64 Bn in November.
  • Actively managed fixed-income ETFs listed in North America continue to grow in popularity.

“While trade talks continue to make noise in the headlines, the very real prospect of slowing global growth appears to be filtering into market sentiment.

A seemingly more reposed approach to monetary policy along with the China-US trade truce provided enough of a tailwind to lift US markets to finish in the green by the end of November, with the S&P 500 gaining 2.04% over the month bringing the year-to-date gain to 5.11%.
Apart from the Eurozone, where various domestic issues continue to dominate, most developed markets closed the month with marginal gains, the S&P developed ex-US BMI was up 0.17% in November with year-to-date declines of 9.66%.

EM and Frontier markets bounced back from the October fall, finishing up 4.61% and 1.94% respectively, softening year-to-date declines to 11.15% and 8.95%”  according to Deborah Fuhr, managing partner and a founder of ETFGI.

At the end of November 2018, the actively managed ETF/ETP industry had 611 ETFs/ETPs, with 773 listings, assets of $109 Bn, from 127 providers listed on 20 exchanges.

Following net inflows of $3.64 Bn and market moves during the month, assets invested in actively managed ETFs/ETPs listed globally increased by 3.11%, from $106.09 Bn at the end of October 2018, to $109.39 Bn.

Growth in actively managed ETF and ETP assets as of the end of November 2018

Equity focused actively managed ETFs/ETPs listed globally attracted net inflows of $276 Mn in November, growing net inflows for 2018 to $6.31 Bn, slightly less than the $6.37 Bn in net inflows at this point last year. Fixed Income focused, actively managed ETFs and ETPs listed globally saw net inflows of $3.63 Bn, bringing net inflows for 2018 to $24.43 Bn, greater than the $16.91 Bn in net inflows at this point last year.
