Amundi has reported three key themes have been driving flows into its ETF range:

  • Fixed income: More specifically Amundi’s ETF Floating Rate Notes range, offered with or without currency hedging, has reached assets under management (AUM) of over €2bn and has collected over €700 million since 1 January 2017. The suite offers investors a hedging solution for rising US interest rates, without sacrificing potential yield.
  • European equities: Amundi’s European equities ETF range attracted more than €1bn in the first two months of 2017, representing over 45% of European ETF market flows with similar exposures. Despite continuing political uncertainty, Amundi reports investors are increasingly considering a potential recovery of European equities, based on positive macroeconomic signals and attractive valuations.
  • Japanese equities: Amundi’s JPX-Nikkei 400 ETF, the cheapest ETF in Europe to track the JPX-Nikkei 400 Index with fees of just 0.18%, collected more than €240m YTD. Amundi reports investors have been positioning themselves to profit from the positive outlook for the Japanese economy, which is showing signals of potential acceleration.

Fannie Wurtz, Managing Director of the Amundi ETF, Indexing & Smart Beta business line, commented: “Having achieved the record result of over €4bn net new assets in 2016, Amundi ETF is sustaining this positive trend, now positioning ourselves as the number three in Europe in terms of YTD flows. Investors choose Amundi ETF as it offers them a full choice of price-competitive and innovative solutions for the different market challenges posed by the fast-changing current economic environment.”
