Flows into Money Market Fund YTD exceed $1 trillion

With key meetings, decisions and data points at, or after, the end of the latest reporting period, flows for most EPFR-tracked fund groups during the final week of April were subdued. Money Market Funds saw by far the biggest inflows in cash terms, taking in a net $91.5 billion that pushed their total year-to-date over the $1.1 trillion mark.

Moving to cash aside, investors did show some positive conviction when it came to Turkish and Australian debt, junk bonds, several sectors, Mexican equity and funds with socially responsible (SRI) or environmental, social and governance (ESG) mandates. Funds dedicated to European, Korean, South African and Brazilian equity, meanwhile, experienced above average redemptions.

Overall, the week ending April 29 saw EPFR-tracked Bond Funds attract a net $10.5 billion and Alternative Funds $212 million. Equity Funds post a collective outflow of $6.7 billion – with Emerging Markets Equity Funds accounting for half of that headline number -- while $1.7 billion flowed out of Balanced Funds. Commitments to Dividend Equity Funds hit a seven-week high.
