Loan ETFs Suffer Record Outflows in June


Investors pulled more money than ever before from US-listed ETFs investing in bank loans in June.

With recessionary fears growing and traders seeking the highest quality debt, exchange-traded funds holding loans posted outflows of $2.3 billion in the month, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. That means the cohort has now erased all inflows for the year. At the same time, broad corporate bond ETFs also posted record exits in June with $8.1 billion withdrawn.

Elsewhere, aggregate debt funds saw the weakest inflows since Covid hit in 2020 as just $90 million was added. Cash-like, ultra-short duration products attracted $6.9 billion in an 18th straight month of inflows.
