Notes: Weekly ETF net issuance are estimates that represent industry totals. Actual net issuance data are collected on a monthly basis and are reported in ICI’s “Monthly Exchange-Traded Fund Data”; therefore, there are differences between these weekly estimates and the monthly net issuance. Data for previous weeks may reflect revisions because of data adjustments, reclassifications, and changes in the number of ETFs reporting. Historical flow data are available on the ICI website.

1 Data for ETFs that invest primarily in other ETFs were excluded from the series.

2 ICI classifies ETFs based on language in the fund prospectus. For a detailed description of ICI classifications, please see ICI ETF Investment Objective Definitions.
