A continued rally in the U.S. stock market helped fuel solid inflows for ETFs this week. In total, $6.1 billion flowed into U.S.-listed ETFs during the week ending Thursday, July 19, bringing year-to-date inflows to $137.1 billion.

'BBJP' Assets Explode 

The Invesco QQQ Trust (QQQ) was the ETF to capture the largest inflows this week―$1.2 billion―but the week belonged to another fund, the JPMorgan BetaBuilders Japan ETF (BBJP). Inflows for BBJP totaled more than $1 billion during the period, which is remarkable considering the fund had less than $10 million in assets a little over a week ago. 

With only a month and change since its launch, BBJP becomes the second-fastest ETF to reach the $1 billion milestone, only behind the SPDR Gold Trust (GLD), which did it in three days, and ahead of the PIMCO Active Bond ETF (BOND), which did it in less than three months. 

Other Winners 
While BBJP's 5,900% asset explosion was the flows story of the week, there were several other noteworthy funds to make the top inflows list.

On the equity side, the iShares MSCI Europe Financials ETF (EUFN) picked up inflows of $261 million, equaling a 18.5% jump in its assets under management. At the same time, on the fixed income side, the Vanguard Intermediate-Term Treasury Index ETF (VGIT) had inflows of $478 million, a 21% increase in its AUM.

In terms of asset classes, U.S. equity ETFs garnered the largest net inflows at $2.8 billion, followed by international equity ETFs at $1.5 bilion, U.S. fixed income ETFs at $1.3 billion and international fixed-income ETFs at $519 million.
