The various crises of 2020 have not turned the tide of the ETF flood.
We'll see how the final two weeks of 2020 end up, but for now, it looks like 2020 is going to be a record year for ETFs. As of last Thursday, U.S.-listed ETFs have brought in a whopping $509 billion in net 2020 inflows, ETF.com reports
. That includes $53.4 billion in the last week alone.
That's 49 percent than YTD ETF inflows ($342.2 billion) up to the same point in 2019, and it's 7 percent higher than ETFs' prior record year, 2017 (when they brought in $476.1 billion).
The 2020 ETF inflows break down like this: $187.4 billion into U.S. equity ETFs, $177.8 billion into U.S. fixed income ETFs, $62.1 billion into international equity ETFs, $39.5 billion into commodities ETFs, $24 billion into international fixed income ETFs, $13.7 billion into inverse ETFs, $2.9 billion into asset allocation ETFs, $1.3 billion into leverage ETFs, $540 million into currency ETFs, and $305 million into currency ETFs.
