For the week ending July 13, 2011, the traditional mutual funds industry saw net inflows of approximately $15.1 billion. Equity mutual funds managed to draw in an estimated $340 million in net new money despite a softer tone in equity markets; domestic equity funds outdrew their nondomestic peers by a 2-1 margin. Taxable bond fund flows accelerated as they drew $3.0 billion in new flows after four weeks of sub-$3 billion flows. High Yield funds have turned around significantly and pulled in nearly $900 billion this week, their second-highest pull this year. Tax-exempt bond funds took in over $360 million in net flows after last week’s $280 million outflow. Although California muni debt funds continued to see assets withdrawn, high yield muni funds drew almost $70 million and national muni funds drew over $500 million in net sales. Money market funds received the bulk of new money as over $11.4 billion was set aside in cash accounts. This week, taxable accounts drew the lion’s share of net sales with over $15.1 billion committed.
