Int'l Equity & Biotech ETFs Fuel Weekly Inflows

June 30, 2017

ETFs had another week of modest-but-positive inflows, according to FactSet. During the week ending Thursday, June 29, $3.6 billion came into U.S.-listed exchange-traded products, bringing the year-to-date haul to $249 billlion. 

As has been a theme in recent weeks, international equity ETFs were favored over U.S. equity ETFs. The latter had outflows of $3.7 billion, while the former had inflows of $4.3 billion.

U.S. fixed-income ETFs were also popular, with inflows of $2 billion, even as the U.S. 10-year Treasury yield jumped from 2.14% to 2.3% week-over-week. 

International fixed-income and commodity ETFs also saw inflows this week, to the tune of $550 million and $264 million, respectively.

Other notable winners included the iShares Core U.S. Aggregate Bond ETF (AGG), with inflows of $615 million, and the iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB), with inflows of $608 million.
