Oct. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Assets in exchange-traded products linked to commodities rose to a record $178.2 billion last quarter as funds flowing into gold outweighed reductions in energy and agriculture, ETF Securities LLC said.
Gold assets under management rose $13.7 billion to $121.7 billion as investors shunned riskier holdings amid signs of slowing global growth and mounting concerns that Europe’s debt crisis would worsen, ETF said in a report today. The figures reflect a combination of price gains and investor inflows, ETF said.
