Investors added $8.1 billion to U.S.-listed ETFs during the week ending Friday, May 12. That brought year-to-date inflows up to almost $120 billion. That compares to $203.3 billion at this same time a year ago.  

The world’s largest ETF, the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY), topped the weekly inflows list with creations of $5.1 billion. 

The market remained in a holding pattern last week as a rally in megacap tech stocks was offset by weakness in bank stocks. 

Meanwhile, on the outflows side of the ledger, the iShares Core S&P 500 ETF (IVV) and the Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLF) took the top spots, each with redemptions in excess of $1 billion.
