ETF Inflows Edge Up To $311B

July 11, 2022

Last week was a quiet one for ETF flows, as investors added a modest $3 billion to their U.S.-listed ETF holdings.  

Two big categories saw net outflows—U.S. equity ETFs and commodity ETFs—but that was more than made up for by a solid $7.1 billion of net inflows for U.S. fixed income ETFs. 

The bottom line was that $3 billion entered U.S.-listed ETFs as a whole during the week ending Friday, July 8. That pushed year-to-date inflows up to $311.1 billion, compared with $477.6 billion at this same time a year ago. 

Individual Movers  

Two funds focused on similar parts of the Treasury yield curve topped the weekly inflows list: the iShares 7-10 Year Treasury Bond ETF (IEF) and the SPDR Portfolio Intermediate Term Treasury ETF (SPTI). They had inflows of $2.8 billion and $1.5 billion, respectively. 

Other fixed income ETFs to make the weekly top 10 included the iShares iBoxx USD High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG), the iShares iBoxx USD Investment Grade Corporate Bond ETF (LQD) and the WisdomTree Floating Rate Treasury Fund (USFR)

Meanwhile, on the other side of the ledger, the iShares Short Treasury Bond ETF (SHV), the SPDR Gold Trust (GLD), the Energy Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLE) and the iShares Silver Trust (SLV) were among the funds with the largest outflows.
