(Story recast to lead with SPY redemptions instead of IYR creations.)

Investors pulled $873.4 million from the SPDR S'P 500 ETF (NYSEArca:SPY - News), making it No. 1 on IndexUniverse’s “Top 10 Redemptions” list. Despite net outflows, total ETF assets rose to a record $1.186 trillion, propelled by a rise in stocks that briefly lifted the Dow above 13,000 for the first time since 2008.

Net outflows totaled $663.5 million, but total assets under management rose to a record $1, 186 trillion from $1.184 trillion on Monday, Feb. 21, according to data compiled by IndexUniverse. The market’s upward movement offset the net outflows.

The Dow Jones industrial average rose 15.82 points, or 0.1 percent, to close at 12,965. Stocks rallied on news of another round of aid for Greece, as well as generally positive corporate earnings reports. The S'P 500 was up 0.98 points, or 0.07 percent, to close at 1,362.21.

The No. 2 fund on IndexUniverse’s redemptions list was the Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund (NYSEArca:XLF - News), which had outflows of $185.4 million. The No. 3 fund was the ProShares UltraShort 20+ Treasury (NYSEArca:TBT - News), which had outflows of $98.0 million.
