ETFGI Reaches New ETF Record of $5.52 Trillion In Invested Assets

On Tuesday, ETFGI, a leading independent research and consultancy firm covering trends in the global ETFs and ETPs ecosystem, reported that assets invested in ETFs and ETPs listed in the United States reached a new record of $5.52 trillion at the end of January.

$57.23 billion in net inflows was gathered in January, the second-largest net inflows, which is greater than the $41.90 billion in net inflows gathered in 2019 but less than the $75.96 billion gathered in January 2018. Assets increased by 1.1%, from $5.47 trillion at the end of December to $5.52 trillion at the end of January, according to ETFGI’s January 2021 US ETFs and ETPs industry landscape insights report, the monthly report which is part of an annual paid-for research subscription service.

“The S&P 500 posted a loss of 1% for January due to the sell-off during the last week of the month.  Small and mid-cap stocks outperformed in January, with the S&P Mid-Cap 400 and the S&P SmallCap 600 up 2% and 6%, respectively.  Slower-than-expected COVID-19 vaccine distribution affected global impacted equities globally. The Developed markets ex- the U.S. ended the month down 1% while emerging markets were up 3% for the month,” according to Deborah Fuhr, managing partner, founder, and owner of ETFGI.
