Weekly ETF Flows See $25B Gain

September 19, 2022

As Wall Street stocks continued to plummet at the end of last week, investors flocked to equity-focused exchange-traded funds.  

U.S.-listed ETFs brought in nearly $25 billion in the week ending Sept. 16, ETF.com data shows. The net inflows mark a stark reversal from the prior two weeks, when funds shed $4.2 billion and $5.3 billion, respectively.  

Most of the intakes stemmed from U.S.-listed equity funds, which alone brought in $20.2 billion, at a time when the S&P dropped 4.8% during the week, while the Nasdaq recorded a 5.4% weekly decline. Meanwhile, U.S. fixed income funds saw $3.6 billion in gains last week, up 33% from the week prior.  

Top performers focused primarily on small and midcap ETFs, including the Vanguard Mid-Cap ETF (VO), the Vanguard Small-Cap ETF (VB) and the Schwab U.S. Small-Cap ETF (SCHA). The Russell Small-Cap and the Russell Mid-Cap indices were up nearly 0.2% during the trading day.  

On the other side of the ledger, funds that incurred the largest losses included the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY), the IShares Expanded Tech-Software Sector ETF (IGV) and the iShares Expanded Tech Sector ETF (IGM).
