Betashares has highlighted the top 10 exchange-traded funds (ETFs) for both inflows and outflows in the month of April.

The Australian ETF industry has broken its six-month growth streak with a funds under management (FUM) decline of $1.7 billion down to $195 billion. This was due to global share market declines, despite the market bringing in positive inflows of $1.2 billion.

According to the monthly Betashares Australian ETF Review, BlackRock’s iShares products took the top three spots for highest inflows last month.

The iShares S&P 500 ETF brought in the greatest inflows during April at $220.8 million. This was followed by the iShares Core FTSE Global Infrastructure (AUD Hedged) ETF at $153.2 million, and the iShares Core S&P/ASX 200 ETF at $144.5 million.

The top 10 products by inflow value are as follows:
