(MENAFN Editorial) ETFGI's analysis finds ETFs and ETPs listed globally gathered US$33.8 Bn in net new assets in July, pushing YTD NNA to US$160.5 Bn, a new record level of NNA at this point in the year, outpacing the previous high of US$149.9 Bn set in 2013. Assets declined slightly (0.4%) from their record high of US$2.64 Tn in June to US$2.62 Tn at the end of July. The global ETF/ETP industry now has 5,410 ETFs/ETPs, with 10,477 listings, from 222 providers listed on 60 exchanges, according to preliminary data from ETFGI's end July 2014 Global ETF and ETP industry insights report.

The ETF/ETP industries in Europe and Japan have gathered record levels of YTD NNA at US$42.7 Bn and US$14.9 Bn, respectively. New record highs in assets were reached at the end of July by ETF/ETP industries in Canada with US$66 Bn, Asia Pacific (ex-Japan) with US$103 Bn, and Japan with US$91.5 Bn.

"In July investors invested almost all net new money into equity exposures as investor confidence was positive through most of month. The S&P 500 hit an all-time high during July, but ended the month down 1% as markets were rattled at the very end of the month by the situations in the Ukraine and Gaza and a poor start to the U.S. earnings season. Developed markets outside the US ended the month down 2%, while emerging markets gained 2%, Asia was up 5% and frontier markets were up 4% in July." according to Deborah Fuhr, Managing Partner at ETFGI.

In July 2014, ETFs/ETPs saw net inflows of US$33.83 Bn. Equity ETFs/ETPs gathered the largest net inflows with US$27.7 Bn, followed by fixed income with US$3.2 Bn, and commodity ETFs/ETPs with US$1.7 Bn in net inflows.

Vanguard gathered the largest net ETF/ETP inflows in July with US$7.69 Bn, followed by iShares with US$6.82 Bn, SPDR ETFs with US$4.24 Bn, DB x-trackers with US$1.97 Bn and PowerShares with US$1.79 Bn in net inflows.
