that, as of October 31, the ETF industry in the U.S. has brought in $502.72 billion in net year-to-date inflows. That's the second highest U.S. ETF industry inflows ever for the first 10 months of a year (though it's down about 31 percent from the record $732.73 billion in net inflows in the same period in 2021). Last month alone, the U.S. ETF industry brought in $90.66 billion in net inflows, the industry's sixth month in a row of inflows (up more than threefold from $25.85 billion in September
As of October 31, 2022, the U.S. ETF industry had $6.332 trillion in AUM. Despite the inflows, market volatility (the S&P 500 is down 17.7 percent) has taken its toll on ETF AUM, as U.S. ETF industry AUM is still down 12.2 percent YTD. The U.S. industry now has 266 ETF providers offering a combined total of 3,046 products.
Worldwide, the ETF industry brought in $708.37 billion in net inflows last month, the ETFGI team reports
. The industry had $8.87 trillion in AUM, 661 providers, and 10,954 products as of October 31.
(Thus, the U.S. ETF industry accounted for about 71 percent of worldwide ETF inflows last month. As of October 31, the U.S. ETF industry accounted for 71 percent of worldwide ETF industry AUM, 40 percent of providers, and 28 percent of products.)
