A Growing Demand for Fixed Income ETFs

The Federal Reserve’s aggressive rate hikes have served fixed income ETFs well. VettaFi’s head of research Todd Rosenbluth said the “category pulled in more than 40% of the industry’s new money” year to date as of September 30. This is “despite representing only 20% of the market.”

“There has been growing demand for fixed income ETFs in 2023,” he added.
