27 Jun – 01 Jul 2016


Bond ETFs experienced a second week of fund outflows, equivalent to 0.8% of total ETF value. The larger ETFs had the largest outflow in absolute terms but in percentage terms the largest outflow was from the iShares UBS Government Inflation ETF, although all types of bond ETFs had outflows to a greater or lesser extent. This implies the bond ETF sector as a whole was out of favour, rather than some sort of sector rotation from one segment of the bond market to another.
