  • US listed ETF net inflows totaled an estimated $32.7 billion in Q1, a significant drop from the $95.5 billion in net inflows in the previous quarter.
  • Taxable Bond ETFs had the strongest net inflows, totaling $32.3 billion, more than double the net inflows for the category in the previous quarter.
  • Commodity ETFs—one of two categories with net outflows in Q4 2015—had the second strongest net inflows in Q1 with $9.4 billion, as investors piled into precious metals ETFs.
  • Equity ETF categories had the greatest net outflows in Q1, led by Sector Equity ETFs (-$5.5 billion), International Equity ETFs (-$5.2 billion), and US Equity ETFs (-$2.2 billion).  This was a reversal from Q4 2015, in which all three had relatively strong net inflows.
