Global equities embraced in July PDF Print E-mail

The ETP Landscape Report, produced by the BlackRock Investment Institute, shows that investors in exchange traded products (ETPs) embraced equities in July.


Global ETPs attracted total inflows of $22.6bn in July with investors embracing equities, adding $21.0 billion, primarily in US exposures.


Ultra-low interest rates and speculation about monetary easing by the European Central Bank encouraged risk appetite. US Large Cap products attracted $6.9 billion while more economically sensitive US Small Cap inflows reached a nine-month high of $2.3 billion.


Equity Income strategies remained a major draw for ETP investors, according to the report. High-Dividend Yield, Real Estate and Preferred Stock ETPs generated a combined $3.1 billion in July.


Investor use of higher-yielding Equity ETPs in their search for above average returns has supported year-to-date inflows of $21.0 billion into the category -- 48% above last year's comparable seven-month total of $14.2 billion.


Emerging Markets Equity ETPs drew $3.6 billion, split evenly between broad exposure funds with $1.7 billion and country-focused exposures with $1.8 billion.


Commenting, Dodd Kittsley, global head of ETP research for BlackRock, said: "The continued robust growth in ETPs globally is a testament to the efficiencies that they can deliver including transparency, liquidity and precision in a diverse set of asset classes.


“The highest monthly flows into equity ETPs since January and flows in July into higher yielding fixed income ETPs suggest an overall increase in risk appetite among ETP investors."
