ETF Weekly Flows Post $14B Loss

September 26, 2022

Exchange-traded fund flows mirrored the market’s fall, losing nearly $14 billion in the week ending Sept. 23.  

Hardest hit were U.S. equity-focused ETFs, which posted $11.2 billion in outflows. U.S. fixed income ETFs shed $1.3 billion, the first time the asset classes saw losses since the week ending Aug. 19, ETF.com data shows. 

Equity markets plummeted after the news of the Federal Reserve’s third consecutive 75 basis point hike, sending the S&P tumbling more than 4.6%. Both the S&P and the Nasdaq composite recorded two back-to-back weeks of declines and four consecutive days of losses by Friday, Sept. 23.  

The iShares U.S. Treasury Bond ETF (GOVT), the SPDR Bloomberg 1-3 Month T-Bill ETF (BIL) and the iShares 1-3 Year Treasury Bond ETF (SHY) were among the week’s top asset gatherers, while the Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF (VTI) and the iShares iBoxx USD Investment Grade Corporate Bond ETF (LQD) were among the funds that saw the largest losses.
