SPY redemptions totaled $968.1 million on Thursday, May 3, as net outflows and falling stocks pulled total U.S.-listed ETF assets down to less than $1.201 trillion.


Investors pulled $968.1 million from the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (NYSEArca: SPY), making it No.1 on IndexUniverse’s “Top 10 Redemptions” list. Stocks fell as investor concern grew over a government monthly jobs report due to be released today.

Net outflows were $1.85 billion and total assets under management fell to a little under $1.201 trillion from $1.210 trillion on Wednesday, May 2.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell 61.98 points, or 0.5 percent, to close at 13,206.59. Pushing stocks down was concern about the state of U.S. jobs stoked by a report from the Institute of Supply Management showing the employment component of its service-related sector index had fallen to a four-month low. The S&P 500 fell 10.74 points, or 0.8 percent, to close at 1,391.57.

The No. 2 fund on the redemptions list was the iShares Russell 2000 Index Fund (NYSEArca: IWM), which suffered $652.5 million in outflows. The No. 3 fund on the redemptions list was the iShares Barclays TIPS Bond Fund (NYSEArca: TIP), which had $321.1 million in outflows.

U.S.-focused equity ETFs had outflows of $2.34 billion.


Investors put $425.6 million into the ProShares Ultra 7-10 Year Treasury (NYSEArca: UST), making it No. 1 on IndexUniverse’s “Top 10 Creations” list.

The No. 2 fund on the creations list was the iShares Barclays 1-3 Year Credit Bond Fund (NYSEArca: CSJ), which had inflows of $209.5 million. The No. 3 fund on the list was the SPDR Barclays Capital High Yield Bond Fund (NYSEArca: JNK), which had inflows of $94.9 million.

U.S.-focused fixed-income ETFs had inflows of $167.2 million.
