EPFR - fund flow & allocations data

Riding the US consumption rocket

Global Navigator

Coming into 2021 investors were looking to Asia to lead the global rebound. Between December 2020 and the end of January 2021, investors pulled $55 billion from EPFR-tracked European and North American Equity Fund groups while steering over $18 billion into Asia Pacific and Asia ex-Japan Equity Funds. Since the beginning of the second quarter, however, over $36 billion has flowed into North American and Europe Equity Funds compared to just $2 billion for all Asian groups. A key driver of this shift is the American consumer. With an improving employment picture garnished by a series of federal stimulus checks, retail sales in the US during April were up over 20% year-on-year. Investor cash is following the trend. US Equity Funds posted their 12th inflow in the past 13 weeks and flows into Consumer Goods Sector Funds hit a seven week high as that group extended its longest inflow streak since EPFR started tracking them in 4Q00. Furthermore, retail redemptions from US Money Market Funds are gathering momentum, suggesting more fuel on the consumption fires as summer approaches.

Educational losses scar outlook for recovery in many countries

Educational losses scar outlook for recovery in many countries

With the success of some vaccine rollouts, the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic appears to be over, at least in the developed world. But, behind the triumphant headlines, the world is still faced with a lot of economic ground to make up. There is much to try and make whole. But young people will suffer some of the worst consequences if the policies aimed at healing the scars of the recent recessions do not tackle the educational costs they have been saddled with over the past 14 months...

Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap: COVID-19 Market Edition 05.03.21

What the week ahead lacks in big-name earnings releases, it makes up for it in quantity, as it’s one of the busiest weeks for earnings releases this cycle.

The pace of the economic recovery has been strong, and the labor market has gained momentum recently as vaccinations increase and businesses get back to “normal”.

EPFR – Rebound vs. Recovery; looking beyond reflation

EPFR

Looking beyond reflation… Coming into 2021 investors were seeking exposure to the green-tinged global reflation story they expect in the second half of this year and hedging against the inflation they fear will accompany renewed growth. This tension between reflationary and inflationary expectations also kept volatility in the spotlight. These themes have persisted during the first quarter. Equity funds with global mandates have posted inflows every week year-to-date, as have equity and bond funds with funds with socially responsible (SRI) or environmental, social and governance (ESG) mandates. At the same time Inflation Protected Bond Funds have absorbed fresh money for 20 straight weeks and Bank Loan Funds, traditionally used to play rising short-term interest rates, for 14 consecutive weeks...
