Investors took on the risk of equities last week, as U.S.-listed ETF assets reached a record $.1859 trillion.

Investors plowed nearly $10 billion into the ETF market in the past week, as U.S.-listed ETF assets rose to a record high amid a renewed appetite for risk following the Federal Reserve’s latest pledge to keep borrowing costs ultra-low for the foreseeable future.

More than $13 billion flowed into equities—nearly $12 billion of that into U.S. equities—while fixed-income ETFs suffered outflows of more than $2.75 billion. In sum, total ETF assets now stand at $1.858 trillion as of Thursday, June 19, according to data compiled by Analytics.

Financial markets received a shot in the arm after Federal Reserve Board Chair Janet Yellen said on Wednesday that the U.S. central bank wasn’t likely to raise short-term interest rates any time soon. That boosted equities and put bonds on the defensive.
