LIPPER WEEKLY U.S.FUND FLOWS VIDEO SERIES - AUGUST 8, 2012

Published on 10 Aug 2012, by Matthew Lemieux
Despite a positive movement in the markets equity mutual funds and ETFs reported net redemptions of $4.1 billion, continuing their roller coaster ride over the past eight weeks. Once again SPDR S&P 500 (SPY) had a heavy influence over the aggregate numbers pushing out roughly $3.9 billion of the total. Equity mutual funds were able to eke out a net inflow of $133 million and although relatively flat it was a large improvement over the roughly $5 billion in net redemptions experienced over the previous two weeks. Taxable bond funds posted their fifth consecutive week of inflows at $5.2 billion as investors continued to allocate cash to both corporate investment grade (+$1.6 billion) and high yield (+$809 million) products. Municipal bond funds also ended the period strongly with net inflows of $1.1 billion—the group’s seventeenth week of consecutive inflows. Money markets ended the week with net sales of $11.9 billion.

Tom Roseen reviews Lipper's U.S. weekly fund flows for the week ended November 16, 2011. Despite late-week European debt issues and new concerns about U.S. banks, mutual fund investors injected a net $10.0 billion into mutual funds--including ETFs--for the week ended November 16. Earlier in the week, investors cheered better-than-expected initial jobless claims, a jump in exports, and a 0.5%-leap in October retail sales and were net purchasers of equity funds, injecting $2.8 billion. Equity funds, including ETFs, witnessed their fifth consecutive week of net inflows; however, ex-ETFs saw their second week of outflows (-$0.2 billion). Interestingly, perhaps as a result of the on again/off again European debt issues, weary investors for the sixth consecutive week injected some $2.8 billion into taxable fixed income funds and for the second week in a row padded the coffers of money market funds to the tune of $2.9 billion. Municipal bond funds witnessed their sixth consecutive week of net inflows, taking in about $493 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.
