Tuesday, 6 Apr 2010 | 5:42 PM ET

It seems that investors just love their ETFs.

Just take a look at how much money went into ETFs last year as compared to mutual funds.

And that was last year – amid the all the financial turmoil.

Beyond Stocks: ETFs
Whether ETFs killed the mutual fund star, with Douglas Sipkin, Ticonderoga Securities.

According to data compiled by IndexUniverse.com, total ETF assets stood at nearly $821 billion at the end of March 2010, and total inflows for the month exceeded $20 billion.

What does all this activity mean for money managers?

Douglas Sipkin Of Ticonderoga Securities suggests that all depends on how aggressive the firms have been with ETF products.

"It should mean good things for firms such as BlackRock which acquired iShares from Barclays," he says.

State Street may fit into that category too. They’re among the ETFs that experienced the biggest inflows in March - to the tune of $8.3 billion.

However some firms that have lagged the trend.

Sipkin says "Legg Mason is most at risk because it is largely a US mutual fund business and company is slow to innovate."
