U.S. investors were net purchasers of fund assets for the week ended April 3, 2013, injecting over $5.6 billion into the funds business (including conventional funds and exchange-traded funds [ETFs]). However, for the fifth consecutive week municipal debt funds (-$113 million) suffered net redemptions as investors remained concerned about municipal bond funds losing their tax-exempt status during the upcoming budget negotiations and the risk of underfunded state pension plans putting undue pressure on state coffers. Conventional equity funds and equity ETFs witnessed their fifth consecutive week of net inflows (+$2.2 billion), despite some market gurus’ call of a probable near-term pullback in the market. During the week investors continued to inject net new money into taxable bond funds (+$2.4 billion) and money market funds (+$1.2 billion).

Excluding ETF activity, investors kept their foot on the pedal, padding the coffers of equity mutual funds to the tune of $3.0 billion net. Domestic equity funds witnessed net inflows of $1.4 billion, while their nondomestic equity fund counterparts took in some $1.6 billion. However, for the second consecutive week both municipal debt funds (-$113 million) and money market funds (-$2.4 billion) suffered net redemptions as investors remained in a risk-on mode. During the week investors continued to inject net new money into taxable bond funds (+$1.8 billion), which still cast a shadow over the mainstream media’s prediction of a grand rotation out of fixed income funds into equity funds.

U.S. equity markets continued to see-saw as the initial optimism over the central bank announcements quickly lost momentum. For the week ended Wednesday all of the major U.S. indices were in the red by more than a percentage point, with the technology sector taking the brunt of the losses; the NASDAQ ended the period down 2.7%. Surprisingly, the dip in the markets did not seem to have a large impact on fund investors. Looking at the corresponding flows for the week, mutual funds and ETFs reported net inflows of $3.7 billion, with investors continuing to place the majority of new cash into taxable bond products (+$2.3 billion). The equity group was once again mixed; stock mutual funds posted net outflows of $1.1 billion, while their ETF counterparts continued to garner assets of $2.1 billion net. Interest in municipal debt funds jumped as investors injected $915 million into the group—their largest weekly net inflow since mid-August. Money market fund flows were relatively flat, ending the week with net redemptions of $506 million.

Matthew Lemieux reviews Lipper's U.S. weekly fund flows for the week ended November 9, 2011. Despite a modest rise in the markets over the first four days of the week, widening spreads on Italian debt helped push investors to the door on Wednesday. Continued uncertainty over the fate of the Eurozone was exacerbated as two of the troubled nations, Greece and Italy, looked to introduce new governments. Despite this news it looked as investors were still willing to allocate new cash to the fund industry. Overall, the conventional mutual fund business attracted net inflows of $20.8 billion, with equity funds reporting net outflows of $519 million. Taxable bond funds (+$3.6 billion) posted their 5th consecutive week of inflows as Corporate Investment Grade funds attracted the most attention with $1.3 billion in net new assets. Municipal bond funds continued to be attractive with net inflows of $733 million, their largest weekly inflows since September of 2010. Money market funds benefited from the volatile market adding some $17.0 billion to their coffers.

Although $65.8 billion in outflows was attributed to Money Market funds, all other asset types experienced net redemptions for the week.
