This is the ETF Flows Report for 05/08/2017, reflecting new data for ETF units created or destroyed following the prior closing bell. For the total universe of ETFs covered by ETF Channel, there were combined total inflows of $439.7 million day over day. Of note in today's report, the Global ETFs category saw inflows of $776.5 million. Among the ETFs in that category, iShares MSCI EAFE ETF (EFA) had inflows of $623.1 million, iShares MSCI EAFE Value ETF (EFV) had inflows of $104.5 million, and Vanguard FTSE All-World ex-US Small-Cap ETF (VSS) had inflows of $42.5 million.
Although ETFs trade just like stocks, instead of ''shares'' investors are actually buying and selling ''units'' — which are routinely created or destroyed to accommodate investor demand. We monitor these changes, to keep a lookout for ETFs experiencing notable inflows (many new units created) or outflows (many old units destroyed).
