Weekly ETF Fund Flows: $4.35B Moves In

IndexUniverse.com

Investors plowed than $4.3 billion into U.S.-listed ETFs in a trading week abridged by Hurricane Sandy, as New York City bore some of the huge storm’s worst damage.

Overall, total U.S-listed ETF assets rose to more than $1.297 trillion in the period ended Thursday, Nov.1, from $1.284 trillion in the prior week, according to data compiled by IndexUniverse. Hurricane Sandy closed markets on Monday and Tuesday, crimping some of the investment flows.

Markets bounced higher on the week, egged on by encouraging data on U.S. and Chinese manufacturing. The Dow Jones industrial average gained 129 points, or just shy of 1 percent, in the Thursday-to-Thursday period, fueling some of the ETF asset gains.

The week’s most popular fund was the SPDR S'P 500 ETF (SPY), which collected $1.72 billion in fresh assets.

The least popular ETF was the PowerShares QQQ Trust (QQQ). It suffered outflows of $568.9 million.

U.S. equities garnered $2.15 billion in inflows, while U.S. fixed income captured $1.44 billion. Commodities ETFs meanwhile had net outflows of slightly more than $6 million.
