The bumpy end to the third-quarter seems to have taken a toll on investors’ willingness to own equity mutual funds, as withdrawals from these investments totaled $2.4 billion during the week ended October 3, 2012. That’s the eighth week in a row in which investors have withdrawn assets from equity mutual funds, with U.S. stock funds bearing the brunt of those outflows. Net redemptions in that category hit $2.6 billion during the period, with even Lipper’s Equity Income Funds group – which has tended to remain appealing to investors – reporting outflows for the week, even though that figure was a meager $500,000 or so. In some recent weeks, equity ETFs have continued to see inflows even as mutual funds have recorded net redemptions. This week, that pattern changed. After injecting a net $27.8 billion into ETFs over the previous three weeks, ETF investors switched gears, withdrawing $440 million from these investments in the period ended October 3. Once more, safety seemed to be back in favor. Taxable bond funds reported inflows of $2.4 billion during the period, while the riskier high-yield bond funds witnessed net redemptions of about $400 million on top of a loss of $500 million in assets in the prior week Investors found international and global funds more appealing; that group attracted some $470 million during the period. Tax-exempt municipal bond funds also saw their coffers swell, reporting inflows of about $550 million, extending their streak of uninterrupted inflows to 27 weeks.

Jeff Tjornehoj reviews Lipper's U.S. weekly fund flows for the week ended February 22, 2012. Although the Dow closed above 13,000 for the first time since May 2008, confusion (still) surrounding the Greek debt problem prompted equity mutual fund investors to contribute a paltry $1.3 billion this week. Curiously, large-cap growth funds were one of the stronger strategies this week, perhaps indicating a burgeoning appetite for risk taking. Overall, the conventional fund business experienced net inflows of $8.6 billion. Taxable bond funds (+$4.1 billion) continued to gain, particularly high yield products (+$700 million). Investors also looked favorably on municipal offerings as the group posted their twelfth consecutive week of inflows at $800 million. Money market fund investors added $2.4 billion for the week as institutions backed away from government paper.
