According to the team at ETFGI
, a research firm focused on ETFs and ETPs, worldwide aUM in actively managed ETFs and other actively managed ETPs (exchange traded products) rose to a record of $228.41 billion in AUM as of September 30, 2020. That growth was thanks to $8.24 billion in active ETF and ETP inflows in September alone.
In the first three quarters (nine months) of 2020, active ETFs brought in a record $51.48 billion in net inflows (including $8.24 billion in September alone and despite a 3.8 percent September drop in the S&P 500), according to ETFGI. That's up 75 percent from the first three quarters of 2019. Active ETF's 2020 inflows in the first three quarters are also 22 percent higher than for their combined inflows for all of 2020.
Worldwide, the ETFGI team notes, actively managed ETFs and other active ETPs held $228 billion across 956 funds from 181 providers, spread across 20 exchanges in 18 countries.
