10 Most Popular ETFs in Q3

Fixed income ETFs are wholly absent from the top ten most-searched-for ETFs, while emerging markets are also clearly out of favour

The rotation into equity market exposure was in full swing in Q3. For the first time in many quarters, not a single fixed income ETF made it into the top ten list of most-searched-for ETFs by Morningstar.co.uk users.

Hardly surprising, though, if we consider that the third quarter has seen a cascade of positive news for key developed economies. Take the case of the UK, where we’ve gone from lamentations that "plan A might not be working" earlier in the year to exaltations that "the economy is roaring ahead". And so, why bother with emerging markets (so passé!) when you can expect good rewards from the tried and tested old world? We’ll see if this trend lasts.

One key interesting aspect of the below list of most popular ETFs last quarter is that UK investors are looking for the cheapest possible ticket to get back to the home equity market. Vanguard continues to make inroads with its no-nonsense low-cost investment propositions.
