(Bloomberg) -- Mexico is luring a rising amount of exchange-traded fund flows, signaling President Enrique Pena Nieto’s energy-industry overhaul is helping differentiate the Latin American nation from its biggest regional peer.

The gap between Mexican and Brazilian flows climbed to $570 million during the first seven business days of April, with $148.7 million of inflows to Mexico and $421.3 million in Brazil outflows. In the year to date, investors have deposited $315.1 million into Mexico ETFs and withdrawn $1.08 billion from Brazil-tied funds, for a difference of $1.39 billion, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
