Assets declined slightly (0.4%) from their record high of US2.64 Tn in June to US2.62 Tn at the end of July.

"In July investors invested almost all net new money into equity exposures as investor confidence was positive through most of month. The S&P 500 hit an all-time high during July, but ended the month down 1% as markets were rattled at the very end of the month by the situations in the Ukraine and Gaza and poor start to the U.S. earnings season. Developed markets outside the US ended the month down 2%, while emerging markets gained 2%, Asia was up 5% and frontier markets were up 4% in July." according to Deborah Fuhr, Managing Partner at ETFGI.

About ETFs
ETFs are typically open-ended, index-based funds, with active ETFs accounting for less than 1% market share. They can be bought and sold like ordinary shares on a stock exchange and offer broad exposure across developed, emerging and frontier markets, equities, fixed income and commodities. ETFs are used widely by institutional investors and increasingly by financial advisors and retail investors to: equitize cashimplement diversified exposure to a marketcomprise a core or satellite investmentbe a long term strategic investmentimplement tactical adjustments to portfoliosuse as building blocks to create entire portfoliosallow investors to hedge the marketuse as an alternative to futures and other derivative productsExchange Traded Products (ETPs) are products that have similarities to ETFs in the way they trade and settle but do not use an open-end fund structure. The use of other structures including unsecured debt, grantor trusts, partnerships, and commodity pools by ETPs can, in addition to a significantly different risk profile, create different tax and regulatory implications for investors when compared to ETFs, which are funds.About ETFGIEstablished by industry expert Deborah Fuhr and partners, ETFGI is a wholly independent research and consultancy firm providing research and services to firm such as the leading global institutional and professional investors, the global exchange traded fund and exchange traded product industry, its Regulators and its advisers.
