U.S.-listed ETFs had solid weekly inflows of $13.6 billion, bolstering an already-strong month for creations. After four-straight weeks of outflows from U.S. equity ETFs, that segment finally registered a net inflow during the week ending Thursday, June 1, according to the latest data from FactSet. That was largely thanks to $6 billion worth of inflows for the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY)

Meanwhile, international equity ETFs continued to soak up investor dollars, just at a slower pace. Those funds had inflows of $3.5 billion during the week. The other big winners were U.S. fixed-income ETFs, with total inflows of $2.2 billion.

Year-to-date inflows now stand at $202.3 billion.
