Hanetf: ETF retail investors plan to boost investment in the sector

by | Jan 20, 2023

  • 70%[1]expect the amount they invest in ETFs to increase over the next five years
  • Average total investment could soar by a third[2], research shows
  • HANetf offers the most extensive range of thematic ETFs in Europe and top performing themes include solar, clean energy, smart and distributed energy, uranium miners, and midstream energy.

Retail investors expect to boost the amount they invest in ETFs as interest in the fund structure continues to grow, new research[3] by HANetf, Europe’s first independent white-label ETF and ETC platform, and leading provider of thematic ETFs, and crypto and commodity ETCs, shows.

The study among current ETF investors[4] found that 70% expect to increase the amount they invest in the products over the next five years with one in five (20%) predicting a dramatic increase.

The research[5] with ETF retail investors shows they have an average of £26,700 in ETFs currently.

Nearly half (48%)[6] of current ETF investors estimate that 10% or more of their total investments will be in ETFs within three years, the study found.

Recent launches at HANetf include thematic ETFs in partnership with Grayscale, the world’s largest digital currency asset manager[7], and uranium experts Sprott Asset Management. The Grayscale Future of Finance UCITS ETF (GFOF) provides exposure to companies at the intersection of finance, technology, and digital assets, that are expected to build the digital economy of the future while the Sprott Global Uranium Miners UCITS ETF (URNM) allows investors to access the growth of nuclear power, and its increasing role in the energy transition, through exposure to uranium miners.

Hector McNeil, co-CEO and co-Founder of HANetf comments: “Retail investors are clearly embracing the ETF wrapper. Their growing support points to a strong future for ETFs, which places an onus on ETF providers to continue to innovate and launch new products. We have pioneered the expansion of thematic funds and have Europe’s most extensive range of thematic ETFs.”
