The exchange traded fund industry came of age during 2015, with continued investor adoption resulting in a number of records broken for funds under management, net inflows, trading activity and number of products launched. The industry recorded its highest ever annual growth in 2015, with funds under management increasing $6.4 billion (up 42% on 2014) to end the year at a new record high of $21 billion. In a year when most stock markets remained flat, or even fell, the Australian exchange traded fund industry showed resilience by maintaining steady and consistent net inflows, with almost all (94%) of the growth coming from net inflows. This represents a record of $6 billion in new money, an increase of 40% on the net inflows of 2014 ($4.3 billion). To read the full report click here: (VIEW LINK)
