ETF sales set to soar

28 July 2010 / by Lois Avery

ETF assets are expected to grow by up to 30 per cent this year, according to a report from Blackrock.

Their monthly ETF Landscape Industry Review showed 2,525 Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) with 4,637 listings worldwide for the beginning of this year.

In total there were 3,075 products with 5,811 listings, assets of $1,158.4 from 156 providers on 44 exchanges around the world up until June 2010.

An ETF is an investment vehicle traded on stock exchanges globally. ETFs hold assets such as stocks and shares, and often track an index, such as the FTSE 100.

Blackrock said: "The landscape will continue to evolve in 2010 and beyond as we see more products from traditional active asset managers and alternative asset class exposures becoming available to mainstream retail and institutional investors."

Integral Asset Management also believe that  sales of exchange traded funds are set to soar this year to make up 25 per cent of all assets under management by the year 2015.

Expert Nick Dewhirst said:  "So far, ETF growth has offset the decline in traditional closed-end funds. If it were merely conversion from closed-end funds, then ETF growth should slow now that closed-end are down below 2 per cent market share.

"But that is not happening. In 2009 ETF market share growth surged roughly 25 per cent."
