LONDON — July 26, 2017 — ETFGI, a leading independent research and consultancy firm on trends in the global ETF/ETP ecosystem, reported today that assets invested in ETFs/ETPs listed globally reached a new record of US$4.168 trillion at the end of first half of 2017, according to ETFGI’s June 2017 global ETF and ETP industry insights report an annual paid for research subscription service.
The Global ETF/ETP industry had 6,965 ETFs/ETPs, with 13,125 listings, assets of US$4.168 trillion, from 328 providers listed on 70 exchanges in 56 countries.
“Equity markets have performed well in the first half of 2017: the S&P 500 gained 9.34%, international equity markets outside the US were up 14.27% and emerging markets were up 16.69%. 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.
