U.S. exchange-traded funds collectively bled $4.3 billion in April 2022, marking their first month of outflows since August 2019. Stock ETFs--whose strong showing in 2021 powered a new annual flows record for ETFs--saw a $19.2 billion exodus in April, and tame inflows for fixed-income and commodities funds weren't enough to push overall ETF flows into positive territory.
