Lipper’s fund asset groups (including both mutual funds and ETFs) had net positive flows of $3.6 billion for the fund-flows trading week ended Wednesday, June 19. Taxable bond funds paced the weekly intake with positive net inflows of $7.2 billion. This marked the group’s second straight weekly net inflow of greater than $7.0 billion—the last two weeks have been the taxable bond fund group’s largest weekly net inflows since taking in $8.4 billion for the fund-flows week ended January 9, 2019. Municipal bond funds also contributed to the net inflows with a net positive flow of $856 million (the groups’ twenty-fourth consecutive weekly net inflow), while equity funds (-$3.7 billion) and money market funds (-$798 million) both saw money leave their coffers.
Pat Keon, a senior research analyst with Lipper, speaks to the highlights in this week's video.
