“In July investors invested the majority of 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 market were rattled at the very end of the month by the situations in the Ukraine and Gaza and a 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.
In July 2014, ETFs/ETPs saw net inflows of US$19.1 Bn. Equity ETFs/ETPs gathered the largest net inflows with US$16.48 Bn, followed by commodity ETFs/ETPs with US$976 Mn, and fixed income ETFs/ETPs with US$263 Mn in net inflows.
