ETFs registered blazing hot inflows during October, led by U.S. equity and U.S. fixed income ETFs. The month’s haul—$91.5 billion—was a new monthly record, edging past the inflows of $91.1 billion seen in March of this year and the $91.2 billion seen in November 2020.  

Of the inflows, $52.5 billion went into U.S. equity ETFs and $31.1 billion went into U.S. fixed income ETFs. On the other hand, commodity ETFs had net outflows of $2.9 billion. 

Following October’s robust showing, year-to-date inflows for U.S.-listed ETFs now stand at just over $500 billion, compared with $725.9 billion at the same time a year ago. Though they lag behind last year’s record pace, ETF inflows in 2022 are on the cusp of surpassing 2020’s full-year total of $507.4 billion—which is the second-largest annual haul.  

TIPS ETFs In Favor 

The bulk of October’s inflows went into equity ETF titans like the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) and the iShares Core S&P 500 ETF (IVV).  

Corporate bond ETFs, like the iShares iBoxx USD Investment Grade Corporate Bond ETF (LQD) and the SPDR Bloomberg High Yield Bond ETF (JNK), were popular as well.
