This Week's Asset Class Flows: 11/10/2020
November 12, 2020 at 10:54 AM EST
Investors often reallocate money between asset classes, whether to manage risk or simply rebalance. This is our weekly snapshot of where ETF investors are putting their money. After the beating it took last week, equities are back on top. Industry titan ( SPY A ) saw over $12 billion in new assets this past week, or 71% of the asset class’ total flows. While bonds are back in black as well, the swing is much less dramatic as their top gainer, the iShares iBoxx $ High Yield Corporate Bond ETF ( HYG A ), pulled in just under $3 billion. Nothing to sneeze at, but not in the same league as SPY week. On the smaller side, volatility saw inflows to the tune of 9.54% of total assets. While not shocking after the events of election week, the swing here comes on the back of the ProShares Ultra VIX Short-Term Futures ( UVXY B- ), which provides 1.5x exposure to the VIX index.
