European ETF inflows climbed to $72.6bn, representing a 18% increase on the record set YTD through end of November 2014.

Net inflows of $4.0bn for November marks the 14th consecutive month of positive net inflows in Europe.

By asset class, equity ETFs gathered the largest net inflows with $2.8bn in November, followed by fixed income ETFs/ETPs with $925m, while commodity ETFs/ETPs saw no net change in flows.

Equity ETFs have also gathered the largest net inflows YTD with $42.3bn, followed by fixed income ETFs/ETPs with $24.9bn, and commodity ETFs/ETPs with net inflows of $1.2bn.

iShares accumulated the lion’s share of assets during November with net inflows of $2.1bn, followed by Vanguard with $381m and Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management (Deutsche AWM) with $364m.

In the first eleven months of 2015 record levels of net new assets have been gathered by ETFs/ETPs listed globally with net inflows of $319.3bn marking a 15% increase over the prior record set during the first eleven months of 2014. In the United States net inflows reached $201.7bn, which is 5% higher than the prior record set last year, in Canada net inflows at $11.4bn are up 10.7% over the prior record set in 2012. In Japan, YTD net inflows were up 210% on the prior record set in 2013, standing at $33.7bn at the end of November 2015.
