1 month returns in December for the ETFs in the YieldReport survey are starting to be reported and they are typically in the 0.30% to 0.40% range. This is in line with bond yields falling throughout the month. The recent focus on capital preservation and thus the preference for bond market assets will likely see ETFs in January as particularly popular.

Bond ETFs continue to attract funds from investors, with the size of the ETFs in the YieldReport survey increasing on aggregate by 0.20% over the last week. The recipient of the largest inflow in percentage terms was the Russell Australian Semi-Government Bond ETF while the recipient of the large inflow in absolute terms was once again the iShares UBS Composite Bond Index Fund.
