ETFs continued to gain popularity in the Canadian market in February, with bond funds in particular attracting investors with the promise of high yields, according to an article published by the Wall Street Journal.

Canada-listed ETFs drew in C$1.5 billion during February, and bond funds accounted for seven of the top 10 ETFs, according to the article.

The BMO Aggregate Bond Index ETF (TSE: ZAG), the iShares DEX Universe Bond Index Fund (TSE: XBB) and the BMO Short Federal Bond Index ETF (TSE: ZFS) were the most popular bond ETFs of last month, reports WSJ.
