Great Graphic: Asset Managers Embrace ETFs

This Great Graphic was in a report by Chris Flood of the Financial Times. It shows the increased use of ETFs by asset managers.  Flood reports that ETFS are now used by 18% of US institutional fund managers, up 4 percent points over the past year, based on figures from Greenwich Associates.  

A study by Blackrock of the world's top 15 fund managers found that their ETF ownership increased on average by more than 30% a year over the three year period ending September 2012.  

The use of ETFs has evolved as the market has matured and fund managers feel more comfortable in that space.  Initially, ETFS were used for cash equitisation or transitions, but now are used to for more strategic purposes of gaining exposure to new asset classes or countries or regions.
