ETF Fund Flows: $194.8 Trickles Into SPY



Investors placed $194.8 billion into the SPDR S'P 500 ETF (NYSEArca:SPY - News) on Friday, making it the No. 1 fund on IndexUniverse’s “Top 10 Creations” list. All three stock indexes were down slightly and the S'P 500 Index was essentially unchanged for the entire year.

Overall, investors withdrew $32.9 million from U.S.-listed ETFs on Friday, and total assets under management were virtually unchanged at $1.061 trillion, according to data compiled by IndexUniverse.

The Dow Jones industrial average was down 69.48 points, or 0.57 percent, to close at 12,217.56. The Dow’s slight decline, amid light volume, was attributed to the week’s normal ebbs and flows. The S'P 500 was down by 5.42 points, or 0.43 points, to close at 1,257.60.

The No. 2 fund on the creations list was the iShares Barclays 1-3 year Treasury Bond (NYSEArca:SHY - News), which pulled in $160.5 million. The No. 3 fund was the iShares Russell 1000 ETF (NYSEArca:IWB - News), which pulled in $138.9 million.

Although net flows were down for equities, investors continued to flock to bonds. U.S.-focused bond ETFs pulled in $247.9 million.


The No. 1 fund on IndexUniverse’s “Top 10 Redemptions” list was the Energy Select Sector SPDR Fund (NYSEArca:XLE - News), which had outflows of $172.8 million.

The No. 2 fund on the redemptions list was the Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF (NYSEArca:GDX - News), which had outflows of $113.3 million. The No. 3 fund on the list was the iShares Russell 2000 Index Fund (NYSEArca:IWM - News), which had outflows of $92.4 million.
