The bond ETF sector seems to have shaken off its risk minimisation preference and gone back to business as usual. Funds flowed into most bonds ETFs during the week and only one suffered an outflow, which was so trivial an amount it may as well have been zero.

iShares UBS Composite Bond ETF was the largest beneficiary of interest in absolute terms while the iShares UBS Government Inflation ETF was the largest beneficiary in percentage terms.
