USA Today reports that the last three months, the Lipper Management Company index jumped 15.3 percent, outpacing the Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index, which posted a gain of 3.5 percent.

Stock and bond funds pulled in $8.1 billion in fresh money in October, according to data from the Investment Company Institute. Stocks of fund companies have been enjoying good returns since 2003, when fund flows became positive at the close of the bear market.

"In both companies, it seems like performance is improving," Fox-Pitt Kelton analyst Dave Haas was quoted in the report as saying.
