What are the alternatives to an overheating US?

The sheer levels of fiscal and monetary support the US economy is currently enjoying make it hard for investors to look past the world’s largest economy. But, with the tension between surging demand and constrained supply reflected in the latest headline inflation number, investors took a look at the alternatives to US asset classes during the second week of May.

A reporting period that ended with investors digesting the number for US inflation in April – up 4.2% year-on-year, a 13-year high – saw flows into EPFR-tracked Inflation Protected Bond Funds hit a 23-week high. China Equity Funds, meanwhile, posted consecutive weekly inflows for the first time since early March, Europe Bond and Equity Funds extended their longest inflows streaks since 3Q19 and 1Q18 respectively, flows to Gold Funds hit an 18-week high and Alternative Funds posted collective inflows for the sixth straight week and 16th time in the past 20 weeks.
