This is the first in what will be a regular monthly feature on our ETF Centre highlighting Morningstar’s ETF Flows Data for the European market. We pull these estimates of monthly capital flows from Morningstar Direct--a software platform which unites all of our global investment data with tools for highly customised analysis. It is important to note that these are merely estimates of the cash flows entering and leaving these funds, and should not be considered precise figures. This data covers the universe of European exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and not the broader universe of exchange-traded products (ETPs). As such, other ETP structures (with a handful of exceptions) are omitted from this data set, such as most exchange traded commodities (ETCs), most exchange traded notes (ETNs), and other various legal structures that fall under the broader ETP umbrella.

Flows by Broad Category Group
Equity ETFs continued to collect new assets, registering approximately EUR 2.1 billion in inflows for the month of August, bringing year-to-date net inflows into the category to nearly EUR 11.1 billion. Money market ETFs experienced the next-largest level of inflows in August, at EUR 394 million, a sharp reversal of the year-to-date trend which has seen net outflows from money market ETFs at EUR 995 million through the end of August.
