Equity exchange traded products (ETPs) have experienced the highest monthly inflows from investors since January, according to BlackRock’s latest ETP Landscape Report.
Latest figures also show that fixed income ETPs have experienced continued inflows for this month as risk appetite amongst investors remains strong.
Overall, ETP investors added $21.0bn to equities in July and higher dividend-yield, real estate and preferred stock ETPs generated a combined income of $3.1bn. Concerning fixed income ETPs, BlackRock revealed that these products attracted more than $60bn, led by government and inflation ETPs with combined inflows of $28.5bn.
BlackRock global head of ETP research Dodd Kittsley said: “The continued robust growth in ETPs globally is a testament to the efficiencies that they can deliver including transparency, liquidity and precision in a diverse set of asset classes. The highest monthly flows into equity ETPs since January and flows in July into higher yielding fixed income ETPs suggest an overall increase in risk appetite among ETP investors.”
