Financial markets were hit with fresh volatility late this week, but that didn't stop investors from plowing money into exchange-traded funds. In the week ending Thursday, April 28, $4.6 billion was added to U.S.-listed ETFs.

Garnering the most interest were U.S. equity ETFs, with $3.2 billion in inflows; followed by U.S. fixed-income ETFs, with $866 million in inflows; international equity ETFs, with $246 million; and inverse ETFs, with $228 million.

In terms of specific products, the SPDR S&P 500 (SPY | A-98), the world's largest ETF, took the top spot, with $1.3 billion in creations.

Other notable winners included the Vanguard Total Bond Market ETF (BND | A-94), with inflows of $586 million; the Energy Select SPDR (XLE | A-91), with inflows of $283 million; and the WisdomTree Dynamic Currency Hedged International Equity ETF (DDWM), with inflows of $242 million―a huge sum for the nascent fund.

On the flip side was the Consumer Staples Select SPDR (XLP | A-92), which topped the outflows list with redemptions totaling $591 million.

That was followed by the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT | A-83) and the WisdomTree International Hedged Quality Dividend Growth (IHDG | B-54).
