by Deborah Fuhr

According to ETFGI:

Global ETF and ETP assets reached US$2.45 trillion, a new record high, at the end of Q1 2014.

LONDON - April 7, 2014 - Flows into ETFs and ETPs listed globally rebounded in March gathering net inflows of US$11.0 billion which, when combined with a small positive market performance in the month, pushed assets in the global ETF/ETP industry to a new record high of US$2.45 trillion, according to preliminary findings from ETFGI's Q1 2014 Global ETF and ETP industry insights report. Globally, there are now 5,204 ETFs/ETPs, with 10,219 listings, from 222 providers on 59 exchanges.

Follow up:

"March was the first month in 2014 when equity exposures gathered more net new assets than fixed income. Equity markets were choppy in March - the S&P 500 closed at an all-time high on March 7th but ended the month up less than 1%. Gains came at the end of the month after comments from Fed provided assurance that short-term rates would not increase earlier than expected. Outside the U.S., developed markets declined slightly while emerging markets gained 3%." according to Deborah Fuhr, Managing Partner at ETFGI.

In March 2014, ETFs/ETPs saw net inflows of US$11.0 billion. Equity ETFs/ETPs gathered the largest net inflows with US$9.9 Billion, followed by commodity ETFs/ETPs with US$876 Million, while fixed income ETFs/ETPs experienced net outflows with US$1.4 Billion.

In Q1 2014, ETFs/ETPs have gathered net inflows of US$33.0 Billion which is significantly below the US$73.1 Bn at this time last year. Fixed income ETFs/ETPs gathered US$17.8 Billion - the largest net inflows YTD - followed by equity ETFs/ETPs with US$8.4 Billion, while commodity ETFs/ETPs experienced the largest net outflows YTD with US$207 Million.

Vanguard gathered the largest net ETF/ETP inflows in March with US$5.3 Bn, followed by iShares with US$1.6 Billionn and First Trust with US$1.2 Billionn net inflows.
