Investors Add $7B To ETFs During The Week

July 10, 2020

About $6.9 billion flowed into U.S.-listed ETFs amid a relatively quiet week for financial markets. Year-to-date inflows ticked up to $218.7 billion, ahead of last year's $129.2 billion pace.

The latest data, which comes from FactSet, showed that investors pulled $3.9 billion from U.S. equity ETFs during the week ending Thursday, July 9. The S&P 500 hovered in its recent range between 3,000 and 3,200 as a surge in megacap tech shares offset a decline in shares of companies more vulnerable to the latest spread of the coronavirus. 

Meanwhile, international equity ETFs registered net inflows of $2.3 billion. Emerging markets stocks in general, and China stocks in particular, spiked this week as the Chinese government encouraged investors to buy. 

The Xtrackers Harvest CSI 300 China A-Shares ETF (ASHR) reached its highest level since early 2018 this week, though the fund didn't make the top 10 inflows list. 

Fixed Income ETFs Lead

Fixed income continued to gather the largest share of inflows. Seven of the 10 largest asset gatherers of the week were fixed income funds, including usual suspects like the iShares iBoxx USD Investment Grade Corporate Bond ETF (LQD) and others.

U.S. fixed income ETFs pulled in $6.5 billion of fresh cash during the week, and year-to-date inflows for the segment now stand at $103 billion.
