Lipper Weekly U.S. Fund Flows Video Series - January 18, 2012
Published on 20 Jan 2012 by Matthew Lemieux
Rising optimism in U.S. equity markets continued to draw investors off the sidelines as mutual funds reported net outflows of $2.9 billion for the week. Once adjusted for the effects of money market activity (-$7.3 billion) the totals looked a bit more promising at inflows of $4.4 billion. Equity funds recorded inflows of roughly $800 million while taxable bond funds added $2.6 billion mostly between High Yield (+$796 million) and Investment Grade (+$640 million) products. Municipal bond funds continued to build momentum with roughly $1 billion in new assets—their second week at such a level.
