22 Aug – 26 Aug 2016


Investor interest in bond ETFs hardly budged this week as new money sat on the sidelines and existing investors stayed put. Fund values moved very little as bond yields were reasonably stable and investor flows to or from individual funds were exceptionally modest. The reasons behind this were the same as for every part of the bond market; few wanted to move in advance of potentially market-moving statements from US Fed officials at Jackson Hole.
