After a record 2020, ETF inflows began the new year at a sizzling pace. With the first month in the books, January 2021 saw net inflows of $65.7 billion, outpacing the $51 billion collected during January 2020.

The pace of inflows will surely slow down at some point, but simply extrapolating, inflows are on track for $788 billion, which would top last year's $507.4 billion full-year haul.

Of last month's inflows, international equity ETFs led the charge, with inflows of $36.2 billion. U.S. fixed income ETFs followed suit with inflows of $15.6 billion, while U.S. equity ETFs picked up $7.8 billion of new money.

Int'l Equity ETFs Lead The Pack

As I've written in recent weekly updates, some investors may be piling into international stock ETFs on the belief that they present a much better value than their U.S. counterparts. 

Still, the demand for U.S. equities hasn't gone away—not even close. Demand for high-flying growth stocks is especially strong. That demand showed up on the flows charts via the extremely impressive inflows for two ARK products. The ARK Innovation ETF (ARKK) and the ARK Genomic Revolution ETF (ARKG) registered inflows of $3.2 billion and $2.4 billion, respectively, during January. 

ARK is now among the 10-largest ETF issuers, with assets under management of $47.5 billion. 

Other ETFs to see interest during the month include the Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLF), the iShares Core Total USD Bond Market ETF (IUSB) and the iShares MSCI EAFE Value ETF (EFV).

On the other hand, the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY), the iShares iBoxx USD High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) and the Invesco QQQ Trust (QQQ) headlined the monthly outflows list, each with redemptions of more than $3.4 billion.

For a full list of January's top inflows and outflows, see the tables below:
