ETP market headed for record high

ETP market headed for record high

The 2017 calendar year is set to end with exchange-traded products (ETPs) at a record-high of $35 billion, according to VanEck.


In a statement, VanEck said the “steep growth” of the ETF sector was supporting inflows into the ETP market, with ETP assets reaching $33.22 billion in October 2017, up from $23.95 billion in the same month of the previous year.

Year-to-date flows to 30 October 2017 reached $6.087 billion, just shy of the record $6.091 billion reached in 2015.

“Investors are using ETPs to access markets offshore and broaden their portfolios, as well as take advantage of smart beta ETFs, which offer targeted investment outcomes and wealth-building strategies,” said VanEck Australia managing director Arian Neiron.

“Based on this sharp trajectory of growth, we expect the ETP industry will grow to between $70 billion-$80 billion dollar within five years.”

VanEck noted that ETFs comprise the majority of Australia’s ETP market.
