$232 billion flowed into ETFs in 2013 with the majority of those dollars moving into U.S. and Japan-focused funds, says Dodd Kittsley, Global Head of ETP Research at BlackRock. Investors seeking to follow the money may want to consider Europe-focused ETFs, says Kittsley, because those funds received strong inflows heading into 2014. He also says the move out of gold ETFs may be over. The yellow metal's ETFs saw $40 billion in outflows last year, but Kittsley says the remaining holders are most likely long term holders.
