Six ETFs tracking the Japanese stock market were also in the top 10 with returns for the month averaging some 7.5%.
There were only three ETFs in the ETF Select 100 which lost ground, the worst performer being the Amundi MSCI Spain ETF, down 0.89% reflecting concern over Catalonia’s declaration of independence.
