This Record Inflow Shows Some Investors Aren't Worried About the Fed

  • iShares 20+ year Treasury Bond ETF got $1.69 billion last week
  • Investors seeking liquid hedges for stocks at record prices

The bond bulls are back. Investors poured a record $1.69 billion into the iShares 20+ year Treasury Bond ETF last week, the most among U.S.-listed funds across asset classes, even as yields rose as the Federal Reserve prepares to shrink its $4.5 trillion balance sheet.

The $9.9 billion ETF has received over half its year-to-date $4.36 billion inflow over the past few weeks alone, having taken in $768 million in the week that ended Sept. 8.
