Investors are hunting for bargains even after the rally that kicked off 2023 has erased part of last year’s double-digit decline in the S&P 500.

The Vanguard Value ETF (VTV), which is up only about 1% so far this year, led all funds’ inflows last week when it took in $2.73 billion, according to data. The No. 2 spot went to the BNY Mellon US Large Cap Core Equity ETF (BKLC); that fund’s assets under management surged 69% as it took in $1.23 billion.

Even after last week’s gain in the S&P 500, the world’s biggest ETF, the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) had the biggest outflows, at $1.48 billion. Despite another Federal Reserve interest rate hike on Wednesday, a corporate bond fund, the Shares iBoxx USD Investment Grade Corporate Bond ETF (LQD), had the second biggest outflows, at $1.47 billion.

Among asset classes, U.S. equities held the top spot, bringing in $8.24 billion. The top performer was the $1.54 million VanEck Digital Mining ETF (DAM), which gained 20%.
