Refinitiv: Lipper European ETF market report - December 2020

Okay, okay.

I'm still a bit spaced out from the hypnosis, actually. And I'm thinking about my new song. I've finished it! 'Yippee!'

Anyway ...

ETF promoters in Europe experienced estimated net inflows of €23.2 bn for December.
Assets under management in the European ETF industry (€992.6 bn) increased during December.
Equity ETFs (+€18.5 bn) posted the highest estimated net inflows in the European ETF industry for December.
Girl. The Beatles!
The best-selling Lipper global classification for December was Equity US (+€4.7 bn), followed by Equity Global (+€4.3 bn) and Equity Emerging Markets Global (+€2.7 bn).
iShares was the best-selling ETF promoter in Europe for December (+€13.9 bn), ahead of Amundi ETF (+€2.3 bn) and Vanguard Group (+€1.9 bn).
The 10 best-selling funds gathered total net inflows of €6.8 bn for December.
The best-selling ETF for December, iShares MSCI World Small Cap UCITS ETF USD Acc, accounted for net inflows of €1.0 bn.

'And what does our Detlef say, boss? Come on!'


Be patient, Voice. Please. 'Okay.'

Thank you.

Detlef will speak when he wants to.

And I don't want to rush this. 'What about your music?' In the minute!


Detlef, are you ready, son?


'Where is he?!'

Detlef! Come on!

Detlef Glow, Lipper Head of EMEA Research at Refinitiv, comments: "December 2020 was another positive month for the European ETF industry since promoters enjoyed inflows. These inflows occurred in a surprisingly positive market environment in which investor sentiment was impacted by the aftermath of the presidential election in the US, the increasing dynamics of The Thing, and a possible hard Brexit."

Okay. Thanks, Detlef.

'Hang on, boss!'

What? Oh ...

"The positive performance of the underlying markets led in combination with the estimated net inflows to increasing assets under management (from €952.5 bn as of October 31, 2020, to €992.6 bn at the end of December). The increase of €40.0 bn for December was driven by estimated net sales (+€23.2 bn), while the performance of the underlying markets contributed €16.8 bn to the increase of the assets under management. It was not surprising equity funds (€676.0 bn) held the majority of assets, followed by bond funds (€271.3 bn), commodities products (€35.7 bn), alternative UCITS products (€5.0 bn), money market funds (€2.6 bn), mixed-assets funds (€1.8 bn), and 'other' funds (€0.2 bn)."

Right. Thanks, man.



Anything else? Music?

My BIG TEN ... ? Well, I reckon ... if I allow And Rain Came Down and Good Times back in - only on a temporary basis, you understand - ... with the new song ... I have a pretty impressive BIG TEN now ...

Life and Death
This World Don't Mean a Thing
What's This Life We Live?
And Rain Came Down
Good Times

[I need the lyrics for Life and Death and ----------.]

Remember, the list is not set in stone. I'll always try to write better songs. BUT that list, kook(s) ... is up there with Beatles, Oasis, and U2. Believe it! I just need to hold my crazy fucking life together for a while longer ...

Okay, okay.

What else?

Let's play some tunes!

Three world-beaters from the lads!

Live Forever. Oasis.

One. U2.

Hey Jude. The Beatles.
