Emerging market equity exchange traded funds (ETFs) saw the most inflows in the first quarter of 2018. Investors paused purchases in March after a return of stock market volatility earlier in the year.

Overall, net inflows into ETFs by European investors saw a significant decline, to €367 million from €7.4 billion the previous month. Over the course of the year, flows into equity products fell from over €12 billion in January to €565 million in March.
