ETFGI Reports That Assets Invested In ETFs And ETPs Listed In US Reached A New Milestone Of US$4.44 Trillion At The End Of January 2020

ETFGI, a leading independent research and consultancy firm covering trends in the global ETFs/ETPs ecosystem, reported today that ETFs and ETPs listed in US gathered net inflows of US$41.90 billion at the end of January, which is  higher than the US$1.62 billion outflows gathered at this point last year. Assets invested in the US ETFs/ETPs industry have increased by 0.4%, from US$4.42 trillion at the end of December, to US$4.44 trillion, according to ETFGI's January 2020 US ETFs and ETPs industry landscape insights report, an annual paid-for research subscription service. (All dollar values in USD unless otherwise noted.)

Highlights

  • January net inflows of $41.90 billion are the 2nd highest behind January 2018 with $78.78 Bn and much higher than the $1.62 Bn of outflows in January 2019.
  • January 22nd marked the 27th anniversary of the listing of the first successful ETF in the U.S. – the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust ticker SPY

“During January the S&P 500 lost 0.04% as markets were affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and offset any optimism on the trade talks with China.  Global equities as measured by the S&P Global BMI were also down 1.33% and the S&P Emerging BMI plummeted 4.3% as well.” According to Deborah Fuhr, managing partner, founder and owner of ETFGI.
