Refinitiv’s Lipper ETF figures for June show that ETF promoters in Europe experienced estimated net inflows of EUR14.3 billion for June.
Assets under management in the European ETF industry hit a new all-time high (EUR1,177.8 billion) at the end of June 2021, Refinitiv writes. Equity ETFs (+EUR11.9 billion) posted the highest estimated net inflows in the European ETF industry for June.
The best-selling Lipper global classification for June was Equity Global (+EUR4.4 billion), followed by Equity US (+EUR2.9 billion) and Equity Europe (+EUR1.4 billion). iShares was the best-selling ETF promoter in Europe for June (+EUR5.9 billion), ahead of Xtrackers (+EUR2.6 billion) and Lyxor ETF (+EUR1.1 billion).

Detlef Glow, Head of EMEA Research at Refinitiv Lipper, comments: “June 2021 marked the fifteenth consecutive month with inflows into ETFs after the outflows caused by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. These inflows occurred in a positive but volatile market environment in which investor sentiment was still impacted by the dynamics of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting actions taken by central banks and governments in Europe and other parts of the world.”
