ETFs and ETPs globally have gathered a new record level of $233bn (€186,6bn) in net new asset (NNA) inflows year to date, according to the latest data revealed by research and consultancy firm ETFGI.

ETFs/ ETPs in Europe alone recorded an additional $8.7bn (€6.97bn) of NNA in October, reaching a new record level of $56.2bn (€45bn) year to date.

In terms of sector allocation, fixed income ETFs/ETPs saw the largest net inflows with $20.3bn (€16.2bn), followed by equity ETFs/ETPs with $12.7bn (€10.17bn), and commodity ETFs/ETPs which had  net outflows of $833m (€667.57m).

“October was a challenging month with increasing macroeconomic concerns over deflation fears in Europe, the ECB’s stimulus program, Germany cutting GDP forecasts due to “geopolitical crisis”, dismal employment figures in France, 25 of around 130 European banks having reported to have failed the ECB’s “stress test”, and questions over the U.K.’s continued membership in the European Common Market” said Deborah Fuhr, managing partner at ETFGI.
