European ETF Market Analysis

The Europe ETF Industry is expected to register a CAGR of greater than 8% during the forecast period(2024-2029).

International investors looking for easy exposure to European markets may want to invest in European ETFs. Having benefited from an evolving regulatory environment and lowering barriers across individual markets, additional factors are expected to drive growth over the next five years. The expansion of Robo-advice and online platforms, in particular, will likely play a key role in European retail investors' growing use of ETFs.

Structural changes in delivering advice helped expand ETF use in European markets. This momentum is further boosted by regulations such as the Retail Distribution Review (RDR), causing distribution models to shift away from commissions.

The fragmented nature of European markets directly impacts the distribution of financial products, and ETFs are no exception. Average daily volume can be surprisingly low, and bid-ask spreads can be wide. The current regulations governing cross-border distribution aim at harmonizing and simplifying the registration process. However, some significant national differences remain.

With the spreading of the Covid-19 outbreak to Europe, stock prices in European equity markets started falling, and volatility soared. After reaching their low points in late March, European equity markets rallied, albeit slower than the US.

European ETF Market Trends

Equity Funds occupied the Major percentage in ETF Market

The European ETF industry enjoyed inflows throughout December 2022. These inflows occurred in a volatile market environment. The market sentiment is driven by concerns about high inflation rates, increasing interest rates, the late effects of the market turmoil in UK government bonds, geopolitical tensions, and disrupted delivery chains caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. In conjunction with the estimated net inflows, the underlying markets' performance led to decreasing assets under management. As for the overall structure of the European ETF industry, it was not surprising that equity funds held the majority of assets, followed by bond funds.

Luxembourg is the largest share for Net assets of open-ended mutual funds in Europe

Luxembourg is known for its expertise in facilitating cross-border distribution of funds. Fund managers often choose Luxembourg-domiciled funds to reach investors across multiple European countries.
