Meanwhile, fixed-income ETPs also experienced $16.6 billion in inflows, notably in shorter maturities and investment-grade corporate debt.

“Although expectations are mounting for further rate increases, the array of options in fixed income ETPs has meant that flows remain resilient at the start of 2017,” according to BlackRock.

There were 6,089 globally listed ETPs with $3.632 trillion in net assets under management as of the end of January 2017.

Investors threw $42.2 billion into U.S.-listed ETPs, with $29.1 billion going into equity-related ETPs.
