For the third consecutive week ended April 3, equity exchange-traded funds experienced net outflows, losing some $800 million, while their conventional mutual fund brethren took in $3.0 billion—for their thirteenth consecutive week of net inflows (bringing their year-to-date total to +$78.9 billion), according to data from Lipper.

“As might be expected, given the strong rally in equities and the record highs set for the broad-based indices, the top ETF attractor of investor assets was SPDR S&P 500 ETF at a subdued $636 million, followed by iShares Core S&P 500, taking in a little under $304 million,” according to Tom Roseen, head of research services at Lipper.
