Published on 09 Dec 2011 by Tom Roseen
Tom Roseen reviews Lipper's U.S. weekly fund flows for the week ended December 7, 2011. Despite strong market performance and better-than-expected November nonfarm payroll numbers reported during the week, investors took risk off their portfolios after hearing about on again/off again European debt woes. Money market funds attracted some $25.3 billion in net new money, with institutional money market funds drawing $16.4 billion and taxable bond funds and municipal bond funds attracting $3.4 billion and slightly less than $1.0 billion, respectively. For the week, conventional equity funds (excluding ETFs) experienced net redemptions, with investors removing $4.8 billion from fund coffers.
