(Bloomberg) -- With financial markets trying to anticipate which parts of the economy will thrive under President Donald Trump, investors have targeted at least one area — finance.

This year, investors have poured a combined $2.4 billion into three ETFs focused on banks — State Street's Financial Select Sector SPDR fund (XLF), BlackRock's iShares U.S. Financials ETF (IYF) and the Vanguard Financials ETF (VHF)  — as a bet that the firms will benefit from Trump's deregulation policies. The funds' top holdings are global lenders like JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo, according to Bloomberg data.
