US ETP assets reach record high of $1.73 trillion

US ETF and ETP assets have reached a record high of $1.73 trillion, according to ETFGI.

At the end of Q1 2014, there were 1,568 ETFs/ETPs listed in the United States, from 57 providers on 3 exchanges.

“March was the first month in 2014 when equity exposures gathered more net new assets than fixed income. Equity markets were choppy in March – the S&P 500 closed at an all-time high on March 7th but ended the month up less than 1%. Gains came at the end of the month after comments from Fed provided assurance that short-term rates would not increase earlier than expected. Outside the US, developed markets declined slightly while emerging markets gained 3%,” according to Deborah Fuhr, Managing Partner at ETFGI.

In March 2014, ETFs/ETPs in the US saw net inflows of $10.9 billion. Equity ETFs/ETPs gathered the largest net inflows with $13.5 billion, followed by commodity ETFs/ETPs with $463 million, while fixed income ETFs/ETPs experienced net outflows of $3.83 billion.
