2 Summary BlackRock ETP Research A cross-regional team analyzing global markets to deliver insights on the intersection of investment trends and ETP flows For inquiries, please JANUARY ETP FLOWS HIGHLIGHTED BY STRENGTH FOR NON- U.S. DEVELOPED MARKETS EQUITIES AND FIXED INCOME Global asset gathering moderated from recent months to $11.6bn, with significant inflows for Europe equity and corporate bonds diverging from heavy redemptions for U.S. large cap and EM equity The more aggressive than expected ECB quantitative easing announcement was well received by the market, contributing to record flows of $8.4bn for pan- European equity and $13.7bn for Europe-listed ETPs Exchange rate movements, particularly U.S. dollar appreciation against the euro, led to a new monthly high of $6.9bn for currency-hedged ETP flows, which were concentrated in Europe and EAFE equity exposures Equity market volatility, uncertainty surrounding global growth and the ECB stimulus news all supported ongoing demand for fixed income funds, which gathered $13.bn, and kept downward pressure on interest rates Commodity flows accelerated to $5.2bn, the greatest monthly total in nearly five years, due to crude oil inflows following the collapse in oil prices as well as the first significant gold inflows since June Subscribe Global ETP Highlights... 3 Year-to-date Overview.. 5 Reference Schedules To receive the ETP Landscape series of reports, please visit our website: Flows by Listing Region.. 6 Fund Inflows and Outflows. 7 ETP Flows by Exposure.. 8 [ 2 ]

3 Global ETP Highlights Global ETP flows 1 of $11.6bn in January moderated from the pace set in Q4. This was largely due to redemptions of ($18.3bn) for U.S. equity funds, a key driver of last year s record industry growth. The S&P 5 was down 3.1% in January 2, reminiscent of a similar slow start to the year in. KEY INVESTMENT THEMES / ETP FLOW TRENDS By contrast, 215 began with surging demand for non-u.s. developed markets equities, which gathered $18.2bn. Fixed income added $13.bn along with $5.2bn for commodities. Europe equity Japan equity Broad dev. eqty Inv. grade corp. Broad EM eqty China equity Pan-European equity funds brought in $8.4bn, their best month ever, helped by the ECB announcing an open-ended plan to purchase 6 billion euros of sovereign bonds per month. The larger than expected size, lack of firm end date and inclusion of long-term bonds were well received by the market. The euro depreciated against the dollar, with the exchange rate reaching 1.13 dollars per euro. 3 This spurred significant flows into currency-hedged ETPs (see below) across geographic exposures as investors anticipate further dollar strength. Switzerland equity added $.3bn following the SNB s surprise change in policy to allow the Swiss franc to appreciate against the euro. It was the second consecutive month of inflows following the $1.2bn from December. Japanese equity gathered $3.2bn, the second month in a row of significant inflows after news of greater central bank stimulus and Prime Minister Abe s recent election victory. The majority of the flows were again from Japan-listed funds. GLOBAL ETP FLOWS YTD Flows of $11.6bn vs. Flows: $329.6bn Flows (US$bn) (5) U.S. equity Non-U.S. dev. equity EM equity Fixed income Commodities & other Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Jan-15 SPOTLIGHT ON CURRENCY-HEDGED EQUITY ETPs The U.S. dollar index (DXY) has risen 18% over the last six months 4 and the dollar is expected to appreciate further in 215. In January alone, currency-hedged equity ETP flows reached nearly half of the total for all of. The global market has surged to $53bn, up from $1bn two years ago. Three key drivers have fueled this growth: GLOBAL CURRENCY-HEDGED EQUITY ETP FLOWS YTD Flows: $6.9bn vs. Flows: $14.3bn 25 2 USD (Europe) USD (EAFE) USD (Japan) Other 2.1 1) General divergence of U.S. economic growth, central bank policy and interest rate expectations with Japan and the eurozone has contributed to currency volatility and increased demand for funds that can protect returns Flows (US$bn) ) The late-212 election of Prime Minister Abe and acceleration of Bank of Japan stimulus, which were catalysts for 213 Japan equity ETP flows of $1.2bn (dollar hedged) and $3.8bn (euro hedged) Jan-15 3) Relative eurozone weakness and long-anticipated ECB stimulus led to dollar-hedged flows of $4.bn in January following $7.bn last year (EAFE funds are also benefitting) [ 3 ]

4 Global ETP Highlights (cont d) Minimum volatility funds brought in $1.9bn, predominantly from U.S. equity exposures. This followed Q4 flows of $2.5bn, 7% of last year s total. The average VIX level over the past month rose to 19., versus 16. during Q4 and 13.5 for the first nine months of. 5 Though U.S. equities overall shed ($18.3bn), a single fund (SPY, the SPDR S&P 5) accounted for ($28.bn) in a sharp reversal from December inflows of $17.8bn. 6 The remaining $9.7bn ex-spy was concentrated in broad market and high dividend yield funds. Broad EM equity remains out of favor. Redemptions of ($2.3bn) were the third in four months following inflows for much of. China equity redemptions accelerated to ($5.5bn) as the A-share market has cooled following a speculation-fueled rally driven by domestic investors. India equity was a bright spot, gathering $1.bn as investors hold out hope surrounding prime minister Modi s reform agenda. Fixed income momentum from a record carried into the new year. Overall corporate bond flows of $6.1bn were the best in three years. The ECB easing had a sizeable impact on Europe-listed flows of $5.1bn, split between investment grade corporate and sovereign bonds. U.S.-listed fixed income asset gathering was also robust at $7.4bn. Flows spanned multiple categories, from Treasuries to corporate bonds (investment grade and high yield) to broad U.S. market funds to municipals. Interest rates pushed lower, with the 1-year Treasury reaching 1.64%. 7 RESULTS AT A GLANCE 1 (US $billions) Jan 215 Dec Jan Monthly Flows (6.7) Assets 2,776 2,797 2,322 # of ETPs 5,42 5,431 5,54 GLOBAL 13-MONTH ROLLING FLOWS YTD flows: $11.6bn vs. Flows: $329.6bn (US$bn) Commodity flows hit a five-year high of $5.2bn.
