February 07, 2012

VWO pulled in $740.9 million on Monday, Feb. 6, as net inflows lifted total U.S.-listed ETF assets to a record $1.176 trillion.

Investors poured $740.9 million into the Vanguard MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (NYSEArca: VWO), making it the No. 1 fund on IndexUniverse’s “Top 10 Creations” list and helping boost total assets to a record. Stocks closed lower on new concerns about Greece and disappointing corporate earnings.

Net flows were $2.49 billion and total assets under management rose to a record of $1.176 trillion from the previous record of $1.175 trillion set on Friday, Feb. 3, according to data compiled by IndexUniverse.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell 17.10 points, or 0.13 percent, to close at 12,845.13. After reaching their highest level since May 2008, stocks were down on Monday in response to concerns that Greece may default on its sovereign debt. Lackluster corporate earnings held back stocks as well.

The No. 2 fund on IndexUniverse’s creations list was the SPDR Financial Select Sector Fund (NYSEArca: XLF), which pulled in $330.6 million. The No. 3 fund on the list was the PowerShares QQQ Trust (NasdaqGM: QQQ), which added $319.4 million in fresh assets.
