A recent Ignites poll confirms what we’ve long believed: when the market recovers, exchange traded funds (ETFs) are going to rake in the assets.

The poll showed that fixed-income is going out of fashion, and it’s all about the equities.

Mariah Summers for Ignites reports that about 23%, or 43 voters, said large-cap equities will gain the most sidelined assets, making it the top choice in the poll that asked where investors will put assets that were once allocated to fixed-income. [Are Specialty ETFs Right For You?]

Some other findings:

  • ETFs came in second place, with nearly 22%, or 42 voters, followed by index funds, with 14%, and balanced funds, with 10% of the vote.
  • Global/international, absolute-return and emerging-market mutual funds received the next highest responses, with 8%, 8% and 6%, respectively.
  • The rest of the poll found that separately managed accounts had about 3%, and around 6% of voters who said none of the products listed would capture sidelined assets, at least not this year. [ETF Assets Riding On Momentum.]
