Bond ETFs push industry past $4trn milestone

The global ETF industry has reached the $4trn AUM milestone,helped largely by fixed income funds which have outpaced the industry’s growth globally.

  • Fixed income ETFs AUM have grown by 43% since April 2014 when ETFs passed the $3trn AUM mark
  • Asia has been the most fertile ground for bond ETFs although bond funds have surged ahead in every region
  • Newly launched bond products are failing to catch on at a similar pace to their equity peers
