Investors added $11.1 billion to U.S.-listed ETFs this week, adding to their strong haul from May. Inflows for the week—which was shortened due to the Memorial Day holiday—included $1 billion of creations for U.S. equity ETFs, $5.7 billion for international equity ETFs and $2.8 billion for U.S. fixed income ETFs.

Year-to-date net inflows for all U.S.-listed ETFs now stand at $403 billion, well ahead of the $160.1 billion seen at this same time a year ago.
