The S&P 500 was up 0.62% in June and 2.65% in the first half of 2018. International markets (developed ex US) and Emerging markets posted losses during June and during the first half of 2018, down 1.48% and 3.40% in June and 2.45% and 6.05% in the first half, respectively, driven by a strong dollar, trade concerns, and rising interest rates.
Accordin to ETFGI’s June 2018 US ETF and ETP industry insights report, an annual paid-for research subscription service, fixed income ETFs/ETPs gathered the largest net inflows during June with $6.46 Bn, while equity ETFs/ETPs experienced the largest net outflows with $6.58 Bn.
Monthly outflows were greatest for those products providing exposure to Emerging Markets equities, such as the iShares MSCI Emerging Markets ETF with outflows of $5.37 Bn, followed by products with US equities exposure, such as the SPDR S&P 500 ETF and the iShares Core S&P 500 ETF, with $4.69 Bn and $3.39 Bn respectively.
Year-to-date through end of June, ETFs/ETPs listed in the US have seen net inflows of $123.31 Bn. Equity products gathered the largest net inflows year-to-date with $71.02 Bn, while Leveraged ETFs/ETPs experienced the largest net outflows with $1.62 Bn.
