Global ETF and ETP assets stand at $2.16 trillion, a new record high, according to data from ETFGI.

These assets are spread across some 4,883 ETFs/ETPs, with 9,925 listings, from 209 providers listed on 57 exchanges.

Deborah Fuhr, Managing Partner at ETFGI, said: “Dovish comments from the Fed and positive market performance encouraged investors to put net inflows of $44.08 billion back into the market through ETFs/ETPs.”

In July, equity ETFs/ETPs gathered the largest net inflows with $41.62 billion. North American/US equity-linked ETFs/ETPs gathered the largest net inflows with $32.99 billion, followed by European equity-linked with $3.51 billion, and developed Asia Pacific equity-linked products with $1.82 billion.

Fixed income ETFs/ETPs experienced net inflows of $5.1 billion. High yield ETFs/ETPs gathered the largest net inflows with $3.0 billion, followed by government bonds with $2.2 billion, and corporate bonds with $868 million, while inflation-linked fixed income ETFs/ETPs experienced the largest net outflows with $650 million.

Commodity ETFs/ETPs saw net outflows of $2.72 billion. Precious metals ETFs/ETPs experienced the largest net outflows with $2.19 billion, followed by energy, and agriculture with net outflows of $223 million and $175 million, respectively.
