Are you worried about stock valuations in the US market? You’re not alone. According to Morningstar Direct data, ETF investors are dropping US equity passive funds and opting for European stocks instead.

Investors pulled €1.6 billion out of US large-cap equity ETFs in April, making it the least popular sector of the month, data from Morningstar revealed. Investors have not pulled that amount of money out of US large cap equity ETFs since March 2015 where the sector saw €2 billion outflows. 

Instead, investors are opting for Eurozone large cap equity ETFs, which recorded €1.6 billion inflows in April. This boosted means year-to-date Eurozone equity ETFs have seen inflows totalling €3.5 billion.
