Vanguard took in an astounding $84.8 billion in inflows, the company announced Tuesday. Investors placed $58.3 billion into Vanguard’s stock and bond funds, $39.2 billion into its exchange-traded funds, and withdrew $12.7 billion from its money market funds.

Those flows accounted for 34% of all money into U.S. ETFs in 2010, and 23% of the flows to stock and bond funds—marking the third best year for sales in the company’s history, surpassed by the $104 billion it netted in 2007 and the $101 billion in 2009.

In terms of total assets under management, Vanguard now surpasses Fidelity, with $1.43 trillion in assets under management, compared with Fidelity’s $1.25 trillion, according to Financial Research Corp. And it is now the third-largest ETF provider, behind BlackRock and State Street Corp.
