ETFGI, a leading independent research and consultancy firm on trends in the global ETF/ETP ecosystem, reported today European ETFs and ETPs have gathered 107B USD in net new assets.

This is the greatest annual increase in European ETF and ETP assets since 2009 when markets recovered following the 2008 financial crisis.

Year-to-date, through end of November 2017, ETFs and ETPs listed in Europe saw record net inflows of $106.6 Bn; 91.5% more than net inflows for the whole of 2016.

According to ETFGI's November 2017 European ETF and ETP industry insights report, a research subscription service, assets invested in ETFs and ETPs grew by 37.9% year-to-date.

This is the greatest annual increase in European ETF and ETP assets since 2009 when markets recovered following the 2008 financial crisis, and an increase of 3.1% on the previous record of US$766 Bn set in October 2017.
