The Asset 25 May 2022

Active exchange-traded funds (ETFs) listed globally gathered net inflows of US$10.44 billion in April, bringing year-to-date net inflows to US$43.42 billion. It was the 25th month of consecutive net inflows.

Assets invested in actively managed ETFs and exchange-traded products (ETPs) fell 2.2% to US$443 billion, from US$453 billion at the end of March, according to research and consultancy firm ETFGI. Year to date, the amount was up 1.1% from US$438 billion at the end of 2021.

At the end of April, there were 1,586 active ETFs listed globally, with 2,011 listings from 311 providers listed on 30 exchanges in 23 countries.

Equity-focused active ETFs/ETPs gathered net inflows of US$6.01 billion over April, bringing YTD net inflows to US$21.09 billion, lower than the US$31.74 billion in net inflows equity products had attracted at this point in 2021.

Fixed-income-focused active ETFs/ETPs attracted net inflows of US$2.89 billion in April, bringing YTD net inflows to US$12.81 billion, lower than the US$25.58 billion in net inflows fixed-income products had reported in the first four months of 2021.

Substantial inflows can be attributed to the top 20 active ETFs/ETPs by net new assets, which collectively gathered US$7.88 billion in April. JPMorgan Equity Premium Income ETF gathered US$1.26 billion, the largest individual net inflow.

ETFGI founder and managing partner Deborah Fuhr says: “The S&P 500 decreased by 8.72% in April and is down by 12.92% in the first four months of 2022. Developed markets excluding the US decreased by 6.71% in April. Emerging markets decreased by 5.40% during April and were down by 11.56% in the first four months of 2022. Among the emerging markets, the weakest markets were Poland (down 17.01%) and Peru (down 15.32%), while Turkey (up 7.44%) and Saudi Arabia (up 4.99%) gained the most.”
