October starts with a bang for Bond Funds

After a quarter where flows to EPFR-tracked Bond Funds steadily lost momentum, stirring at least whispers that a long-anticipated rotation from fixed income to equities is finally underway, those Bond Funds posted their biggest inflow since early June.

Other themes that marked the second quarter did carry into the first week of the third. Equity Funds with socially responsible (SRI) or environmental, social and governance (ESG) mandates posted their 38th inflow in the 40 weeks year-to-date and SRI/ESG Bond Funds absorbed fresh money for the 28th week in a row. Revived interest in emerging markets assets was reflected in the sixth inflow for Emerging Markets Equity Funds over the past eight weeks and the 13th inflow since the beginning of July for Emerging Markets Bond Funds. With yields pinned to the floor US Money Market Funds, which took in over $1 trillion between early March and mid-May, started October by posting their ninth straight outflow and 16th in the past 20 weeks.
