Europe’s ETF industry set for record year

There could be a new record in annual inflows in the European ETF market based on flows in the first quarter.

This is the view of Detlef Glow, head of Emea research at financial data provider LSEG Lipper.

ETGF promoters in Europe benefitted from estimated net inflows of +€11 billion for March 2024.

Assets under management increased to €1.720 trillion while equity ETFs posted the highest estimated inflows at +€9.7 billion.

According to Glow, the healthy inflows for March suggest “business as usual” for the European ETF industry.

That said, estimated net flows for March were below the 12-month average, which could be a result of especially strong flows for January and February in combination with a “rather cluttered” geopolitical situation.

“Nevertheless, if the flow trend for Q1 2024 continues, we will witness a new record in annual inflows into the European ETF industry,” said Glow.

He added that hindrances on the trend path could lead to a “rather bumpy road instead of a straight upward trend” making the forecast somewhat optimistic, however Glow remained sure that “the trend towards ETFs will continue in Europe”.
