Nov. ETF Inflows A Record $91B

·15 min read
In this article:
  • Oops!
    Something went wrong.
    Please try again later.

The stock market wasn't the only thing breaking records in November. ETF inflows also reached unprecedented levels during the month, blowing past previous highs reached in 2018 and 2019.

On net, investors added $91.2 billion to U.S.-listed ETFs during November. That's more than the $63.8 billion added in June 2019, and the $68.1 billion added in January 2018—the latter being the previous one-month record for inflows. 

With a single month to go, year-to-date ETF inflows now stand at $443.8 billion, within shot of 2017's record annual haul of $476.1 billion. For comparison, inflows stood at $264.3 billion at the end of last November. 

US Equity ETFs Lead The Way

Of November's inflows, the bulk went into U.S. equity ETFs—unsurprising considering the powerful rally that stocks had during the month. The S&P 500 climbed nearly 11% in November, hitting a new all-time high. At the same time, the small cap Russell 2000 surged 18.2%, its best one-month performance ever. 

As a group, U.S. equity ETFs picked up almost $62 billion of new money in November, ahead of the $20.2 billion that went into international equity ETFs and the $11.3 billion that went into U.S. fixed income ETFs.

That being said, U.S. fixed income ETFs are still ahead of U.S. equity ETFs in the year-to-date tally, $170.5 billion compared to $151.8 billion. If that holds, it would mark the second year in a row in which U.S. fixed income ETFs pulled in more cash than U.S. equity ETFs. 

Individual Names

In terms of individual ETFs, the the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY), the Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF (VTI) and the iShares MSCI USA Quality Factor ETF (QUAL) headlined the top inflows list for November. 

On the outflows side, the SPDR Gold Trust (GLD), the iShares 7-10 Year Treasury Bond ETF (IEF) and the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) topped the list. Perhaps investors saw less of a need for safe haven assets like gold and Treasuries as positive vaccine news lifted spirits and stocks advanced to records. 

However, on a year-to-date basis, GLD is still among the top five asset gatherers of the year, with inflows of $16.5 billion. It's joined by the Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF (VTI), the Vanguard S&P 500 ETF (VOO), the iShares iBoxx USD Investment Grade Corporate Bond ETF (LQD) and the Invesco QQQ Trust (QQQ), each with year-to-date inflows of more than $16 billion.
