Some background on the institutional users of ETFs and the ETF industry:
Over 3,500 institutional investors in 52 countries reported using at least one ETF or ETP in 2013 according to ETFGI’s Institutional Users of ETFs and ETPs in 2013 report. Many institutional investors use ETFs for short-term applications such as equitizing cash, transition management or as a liquidity sleeve in a fund, they are also used for tactical purposes to adjust to changing political, economic (think reading the QE tapering tea leaves) and even weather concerns and increasingly as strategic tools where they are held as a core holding, provide access to emerging or frontier markets and used to build multi-asset class products. 
The majority of investors reported using ETFs for equity exposure while just over half use them for exposure to fixed income and commodities. Over half of the investors reported an increase in their holdings in the past year while just under a third reported a decline in their holdings with the remainder staying at the same level.  The array of ETFs being used has grown from more than half of the institutions reporting using less 5 ETFs five years ago to just over a third of the institutions reporting holding 20 or more ETFs in 2013.  
The Global ETF/ETP industry had 5,581 ETFs/ETPs, with 10,771 listings, a record level of US$2.79 trillion in assets, from 239 providers listed on 62 exchanges around the world at the end of 2014, according to ETFGI’s end December 2014 Global ETF and ETP industry insights report.
