Weekly Inflows Nearly $16B Amid Stock Records

February 14, 2020

Fresh cash kept rolling into ETFs this week as stock markets touched record highs. On net, $16 billion flowed into U.S.-listed ETFs during the week ending Thursday, Feb. 13. That brought year-to-date inflows up to $89.1 billion, far ahead of last year's $9.2 billion pace.

This week's inflows touched all of the key asset classes. U.S. equity ETFs pulled in $4.6 billion; international equity ETFs took in $2.2 billion; and U.S. fixed income ETFs gathered $7.3 billion. 

The S&P 500 topped 3,380 for the first time ever this week, bringing its year-to-date gains to 4.7%. At the same time, the U.S. 10-year Treasury bond yield traded little changed around 1.58%, down 30 basis points from where it started the year.

In terms of individual ETFs, the SPDR Portfolio Mortgage Bond ETF (SPMB) and the iShares ESG MSCI EM Leaders ETF (LDEM) were among the top flows winners, while the Invesco Russell 1000 Dynamic Multifactor ETF (OMFL) and the iShares NASDAQ Biotechnology ETF (IBB) were among the top flows losers of the week.
