Assets in smart beta ETPs reach record high

Assets invested in smart beta exchange-traded products (ETPs) listed globally reached a new high of US$687 billion (€607 billion) at the end of September.

The data, published in a report from the consultancy ETFGI, showed that smart beta ETPs globally attracted $9.15 billion of inflows during September which was the 32nd consecutive months of net inflows into global smart beta ETPs.

The report said that a trend towards products providing exposure to the US continued, with equity-based products tracking the core US indices seeing substantial inflows.

“Developed markets were broadly up during September following positive economic data from the US, Japan and the eurozone, despite the US-China trade dispute and on-going political tension in Europe,” said Deborah Fuhr, managing partner of ETFGI.

At the end of September, the global smart beta ETF/ETP industry had 1,274 ETFs/ETPs, with 2,312 listings, assets of $687 billion, from 153 providers listed on 38 exchanges in 31 countries.
