Daily ETF Flows: Assets Shoot Up To Record

By
A A A

Investors plowed nearly $5 billion into ETFs on the first trading day of 2013, but the powerful stock market rally resulting from the U.S. Congress averting the so-called fiscal cliff was the bigger impetus behind total U.S.-listed ETF assets soaring to a new record yesterday.

Net inflows totaled $4.7 billion and total ETF assets reached almost $1.379 trillion, easily eclipsing the previous record of $1.350 trillion reached on Dec. 20, according to data compiled by IndexUniverse.

The SPDR S&P 500 ETF (NYSEArca:SPY) was the biggest asset gainer yesterday, pulling in $3.62 billion, the leading edge of a big move into equities.


Fixed income was the big loser yesterday, and the iShares Barclays 3-7 Year Treasury Bond Fund (NYSEArca:IEI) was the least popular ETF, losing $763.4 million, or almost a quarter of its assets.
