Daily ETF Flows: Assets Reach A Record

Dave Nadig and Olly Ludwig

Investors poured $577.2 million into the SPDR S'P 500 ETF (SPY) on Thursday, helping lift total U.S.-listed exchange-traded fund assets up to a record of $1.315 trillion.

Rising markets also provided a tailwind, with the Dow Jones industrial average rising 0.6 percent on Thursday to 13,575.36. Investors were responding to economic data pointing to growth in the jobs market and the services sector.

The new asset record of $1.315 trillion eclipsed a previous high-water mark of almost $1.311 trillion set on Sept. 19, according to data compiled by IndexUniverse.
