ETF Inflow Streak Reaches $29.5 billion.


Despite the rise in US yields and the MSCI Emerging Markets Index closing down 6.3%, inflows into exchange-traded funds that buy emerging market stocks and bonds were recorded for a 17th straight week.

Last week, investors added just shy of $2 billion to U.S.-listed emerging market ETFs that invest across developing nations as well as those that target specific countries. This was above the previous week's rise of $1.13 billion and extended 2021 inflows to $12.6 billion. Inflows notched up this week following fairly steady increases around the $1 billion mark over the prior 4 weeks.

  • Stock ETFs expanded by $2.23 billion.
  • Bond funds fell by $244 million.
  • China/Hong Kong had the biggest inflow, of $990.4 million, led by iShares Core MSCI Emerging Markets.
  • Uruguay had the biggest outflow, of $7.67 million, following withdrawals from iShares JP Morgan USD Emerging Markets Bond.
