Lipper Weekly U.S. Fund Flows Video Series - February 6, 2013
Published on 08 Feb 2013 by Tom Roseen
Investors renewed their interest in equity mutual funds (ex-ETFs), injecting $4.1 billion of net new money into the group--for its first five consecutive weeks of inflows since February 8, 2012. Domestic equity funds witnessed net inflows of $1.1 billion, while their nondomestic equity fund counterparts took in some $3.1 billion. Conventional mutual fund investors took on a little more risk in the taxable fixed income funds space (+$3.3 billion), injecting $1.5 billion into corporate investment-grade debt funds (for their thirty-fourth consecutive week of net inflows) and $1.7 billion into flexible income funds. Tom highlights flows for both conventional mutual funds and ETFs in this week's fund flows video.
