Weekly ETF Fund Flows: FBG, DXJ Lead

By
A A A

The UBS AG FI Enhanced Big Cap Growth ETN (NYSEArca:FBG), an exchange-traded note that serves up twice the returns of the Russell 1000 Growth Index Total Return, saw its assets practically triple in the past week.

Raking in a net of $621.5 million-inflows that seem to have taken place for the most part in one single swoop-lifted FBG's assets 3 ½ times to $844 million in the week ended Thursday, May 23.

UBS declined to comment on the creation, but the inflows came as the S&P 500 Index stayed practically unchanged in the week-gaining under 1/2 point to close at 1,650.51 Thursday-and FBG itself tagged on losses of some 2.5 percent in the past five days. Year-to-date, FBG remains up 9 percent.

Weekly flows data also showed that a pair of Japan-focused strategies-the WisdomTree Japan Hedged Equity ETF (NYSEArca:DXJ) and the iShares MSCI Japan Index Fund (NYSEArca:EWJ)-gathered sizable assets in a week when Japan's stock market faced its worst decline in more than two years.

DXJ was, in fact, the most popular ETF in the past five days ended Thursday, attracting net inflows of $682 million, putting its total asset at $10.17 billion. EWJ, coming in at No. 6, raked in $240.9 million.

In all, investors poured a net of $1.58 billion into U.S.-listed ETFs , putting total U.S.-listed ETF assets at $1.522 trillion. U.S. equities ETFs attracted some $1.20 billion of fresh investor money, while international equities funds gathered a net of $1.31 billion.

On the flip side, the SPDR Gold Trust (NYSEArca:GLD) bled $1.00 billion as outflows from commodities-linked ETFs reached $1.64 billion. GLD has now lost $16.1 billion in total assets year-to-date.

The SPDR S&P 500 ETF (NYSEArca:SPY) was the least popular fund in the past week, facing redemptions of $2.79 billion-or roughly 2 percent of its total assets currently estimated at $140.4 billion.
