State of the South African Exchange Traded Product (ETP) Industry – as at 30 June 2019

10 July 2019 Mike Brown, Managing Director at etfSA.co.za

Market Capitalisation
At the end-June 2019, the total market capitalisation of all the listed Exchange Traded Products in South Africa amounted to R91,3 billion. This implies a substantial increase from the total market capitalisation of R77,8 billion at the end of 2018, a rise of 17,4%.

This jump in the overall size of the South African ETP industry stems from some market recovery - the FTSE/JSE All Share index rose by 12,8% in the first six months of 2019 – but also reflects R5,1 billion in new capital raised by the industry in the past 6 months.
