Published on 10 Apr 2012 by Matthew Lemieux
Matthew Lemieux reviews preliminary mutual fund flow numbers for the first quarter 2012 in this WebEx replay. Despite a stellar first quarter of performance some investors were still wary about jumping back in the market. Overall, U.S. conventional mutual funds posted net outflows of $2.7 billion, dragged down heavily by large outflows from both U.S. Diversified Equity funds (-$11.2 billion) and Money Market offerings (-$84.1 billion). Exchange-traded products fared much better pulling in $52.4 billion for the same period. Investors continued to focus heavily on fixed income products as both mutual and ETF bond funds recorded net inflows of roughly $100 billion.
