J.P. Morgan continued to put itself on the ETF map this week, as three of its BetaBuilders-branded products made it onto the top 10 weekly inflows list.

The three ETFs—the JPMorgan BetaBuilders Europe ETF (BBEU), the JPMorgan BetaBuilders Canada ETF (BBCA) and the JPMorgan BetaBuilders Developed Asia ex-Japan ETF (BBAX)—had combined inflows of more than $2 billion.

Earlier this week, BBCA became the second-fastest ETF to exceed $1 billion in assets under management, breaking the mark set by its sister product, the JPMorgan BetaBuilders Japan ETF (BBJP).

J.P. Morgan’s total ETF assets now stand at $14.6 billion, up from $6.2 billion at the start of the year.

US Stocks Hit Records

The inflows into BetaBuilders products helped push overall weekly net inflows for U.S.-listed ETFs to $6.7 billion and year-to-date net inflows of $163.1 billion, according to the latest data from FactSet.

The data showed U.S. equity ETFs with net inflows of $3.1 billion; international equity ETFs with inflows of $1.6 billion, and U.S. fixed-income ETFs with inflows of $2.3 billion during the week ending Thursday, Aug. 23.

The S&P 500 hit a new record high for the first time in nearly seven months this week, breaching the 2,870 mark. The U.S. 10-year Treasury yield edged down by 5 basis points to 2.82%.

Into USMV, Out Of SPLV

In addition to the BetaBuilders trio, other flows winners during the week included the iShares China Large-Cap ETF (FXI) and the iShares Edge MSCI Min Vol U.S.A. ETF (USMV).

On the flip side, flows losers included the Invesco S&P 500 Low Volatility ETF (SPLV), the iShares MSCI Europe Financials ETF (EUFN) and the iShares MSCI Brazil ETF (EWZ).
