Amundi ETF has surpassed the €50bn threshold in 2019 and closes the year with €55bn assets under management1.

Amid the fast-paced growth of the European ETF market over the last three years, Amundi ETF exceeded the market’s growth rate during the period, and achieved the highest growth rate among the top-5 European ETF providers2
Net new assets of €8bn more than doubled the amount collected in the previous year1. These strong inflows allowed Amundi to maintain its position among the top providers in the European ETF market, ranking 4th by net new assets2 in 2019 and strengthening its market share in terms of assets under management. 

In a market context characterised by changing dynamics, flows to Amundi’s ETF range were well-diversified to multiple asset classes. Amundi’s ETF offering thus demonstrated to be particularly adapted to answer both investor’s strategic/long term asset allocation challenges as well as more tactical ones.

A key factor in Amundi’s 2019 success was its ability to address the various needs of its clients, from institutional to fund managers, as well as the growing demand for ETF-based solutions for distributors. In terms of geographic coverage, the platform continued to accelerate its footprint in Europe as well as in Asia and Latin America where Amundi UCITS ETF franchise is meeting a growing demand from investors.

In a highly dynamic market environment, these strong results demonstrate investors’ continued confidence in Amundi ETF and confirm our position as a leading ETF provider. We are committed in the long term to offer wide-ranging, cost competitive and innovative ETFs to our clients, be they institutional or distributors.
