The assets invested during October in the ETFs industry worldwide increased by 6.2%, accumulating a total of $116.12 billion in net inflows in one month, ETFGI reported Friday.
The global ETFs industry earned an aggregate of $708.37 billion in year-to-date (YTD) net inflows, the second highest on record after 2021, which recorded net inflows of $1.04 trillion.
Deborah Fuhr, managing partner, founder and owner of ETFGI, said: "We have seen 41 months of consecutive net inflows into the global ETFs industry. Net inflows in 2022 continue to be very strong. We are on track to have the 2nd best year in annual net inflows behind last year."
Fuhr noted that the SP 500 increased by 8.10% in October, although recording a descent by 17.71% YTD in 2022.
Markets in the developed world, excluding the US, recorded an increase of 5.33% in October but were down 23.78% YTD in 2022.
According to ETFGI, emerging markets decreased by 3.54% during October and are down 26.60% YTD in 2022. China saw the largest decrease of 14.74% during October.
A big chunk of the inflows can be attributed to the top 20 ETFs by net new assets, which collectively accumulated $58.68 billion during October.
According to the statistics provided by the ETFGI, SPDR and SP 500 ETF Trust gathered the largest individual net inflow of $14.55 billion.
