May 29 (Reuters) - The Federal Reserve's new facility for corporate bond purchases bought about $1.3 billion of shares in 15 exchange-traded funds in its first week of operation through 158 trades, data released Friday showed.

Its largest holding as of May 19 was the iShares Iboxx US Dollar Investment Grade Corporate Bond ETF at $326.3 million. (Reporting By Dan Burns)
