Investors flocked to fixed-income ETFs last week, as rising markets lifted total U.S.-listed ETF assets to $1.761 trillion.

ETFs experienced total inflows of $2.78 billion for the week ended Thursday, May 1, and rising markets, spurred on by stronger-than-expected job market data, helped lift total U.S.-listed ETF assets up on the week to $1.761 trillion.

In asset class segments, $221 million flowed out of U.S. equity strategies last week, while $1 billion flowed into international equity funds. On the fixed-income front, U.S.-focused funds had inflows of $2.2 billion, while $159 million flowed out of international funds.

The S&P 500 Index rose more than 10 points, or about 1 percent, from the previous week to close at 1,883.68.

The most popular fund last week was a fixed-income strategy, the iShares 7-10 Year Treasury Bond ETF (IEF | A-49), which pulled in $1.7 billion, bringing its total assets up to $6.2 billion.

The Technology Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLK | A-77) led all ETF outflows, with redemptions of $672 million. The ETF’s assets ended the week at $12.14 billion.
