ETFs See Modest Weekly Inflows

August 21, 2020

Another week, another inflow for ETFs. On net, $3.4 billion flowed into U.S.-listed ETFs during the week ending Thursday, Aug. 20, according to FactSet. That pushed year-to-date inflows up to $269.4 billion, ahead of the $140.5 billion seen at this time a year ago.

The S&P 500 recorded new all-time highs for the first time since February this week. The index closed above 3,392 on Wednesday, surpassing the previous all-time high of 3,386 set six months ago. 

Even so, investors pulled a modest $2.2 billion out of U.S. equity ETFs, including $1.1 billion out of the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) and $635 million out of the iShares Russell 1000 Growth ETF (IWF).

However, that was made up for by inflows of $3.2 billion and $1.4 billion, respectively, for international equity ETFs and U.S. fixed income ETFs.

Popular international equity ETFs during the week included the iShares Core MSCI EAFE ETF (IEFA) and the Vanguard FTSE Developed Markets ETF (VEA). In-demand fixed income ETFs included the Vanguard Total Bond Market ETF (BND) and the iShares TIPS Bond ETF (TIP).
