Following a record $98 billion of inflows in March, a record $250 billion flowed into exchange-traded funds in the first quarter — 33% more than the prior record set in the fourth quarter of 2020.
Equity ETFs fueled the flows, State Street Global Advisors said in a release. The sector posted its own records, with inflows of $207 billion in the first quarter, 51% more than the prior record set in the fourth quarter.
Despite the negative returns posted by 65% of fixed-income ETFs during the first quarter, bond ETFs added $13 billion in March and $44 billion in the quarter, SSGA said.
