  • Equity Funds reigned in November
  • Roughly three fourths of November's gains were from the performance of the underlying markets

According to Detlef Glow, Head of EMEA research at Lipper, assets under management in the European exchange-traded fund (ETF) industry increased from €444.3 billion to €457.4 billion during November.

In terms of asset classes, Equity funds with €2.2 billion enjoyed the highest net inflows for the month, followed by alternative UCITS products with €2.8 billion and mixed-asset funds with €2 billion. Meanwhile, bond funds, which in October had the highest net inflows, suffered during November from the highest net outflows, loosing €7.8 billion.
