Daily ETF Flows: IWM Gathers $687.2 Million

November 16, 2011

IWM topped creations list on Tuesday, Nov. 15, as eurozone jitters kept market on tenterhooks.

The iShares Russell 2000 Index Fund (NYSEArca: IWM) led ETF creations yesterday, pulling in $687.2 million in fresh assets, as financial markets around the world remained wary that the eurozone’s debt crisis would spread to other countries.

Overall, net inflows totaled $1.10 billion and total assets rose to almost $1.083 trillion from $1.080 trillion on Monday, Nov. 14, according to data compiled by IndexUniverse. The market’s slight gains and the net inflows both contributed to the increase in total assets.

The Dow Jones industrial average edged up 17.18 points yesterday to 12,096.16, in uneven trade characterized by growing worry  about Europe’s debt crisis. Global bond markets began pushing up yields in financially healthy countries, including the Netherlands.

The Nos. 2 and 3 funds on IndexUniverse’s “Top 10 Creations” list were the SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average Trust (NYSEArca: DIA) and the PowerShares QQQ Trust (NasdaqGM: QQQ), which pulled in $417.1 million and $270.3 million, respectively.

The new PowerShares KBW Bank Portfolio (NYSEArca: KBWB) pulled in about $48 million, amounting to 40 percent of its assets, making it the biggest gainer in creations on a percentage basis.

Redemptions

Tuesday’s least popular fund was the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (NYSEArca: SPY), which bled $788.1 million in assets.

The Nos. 2 and 3 funds on IndexUniverse’s “Top 10 Redemptions” list were the Materials Select Sector SPDR Fund (NYSEArca: XLB) and the Energy Select Sector SPDR Fund (NYSEArca: XLE), which had outflows of $122.1 million and $113.9 million, respectively.
