Lipper’s fund asset groups (including both mutual funds and ETFs) suffered net negative flows of $54.5 billion for the fund-flows trading week ended Wednesday, June 17. The net outflows were attributable to money market funds (-$35.8 billion) and equity funds (-$25.5 billion). It was the fifth straight weekly net outflows for the money market funds group. This streak comes directly after a run of 11 straight net inflows that were a result of the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. On the plus side, the taxable bond funds (+$5.1 billion) and municipal bond funds (+$1.7 billion) groups both took in net new money. It was the tenth straight net positive flows for taxable bond funds and the sixth for muni bond funds.
