Fund Flow Data Leave Some Observers Scratching their Heads

News summary by MFWire's editors

In his Fundamentally column in The New York Times over the weekend, Paul Lim writes that some observers find investors' behavior puzzling.

While no one is shocked that investors are currently not enamored of domestic stock funds, some observers are wondering why investors are gravitating to funds that invest in developed markets abroad.

"I certainly understand the popularity of the emerging markets," Michele Gambera, head of quantitative analysis at UBS Global Asset Management, tells Lim. Gambera, however, finds it odd that investors are shying away from domestic stocks while simultaneously flocking to funds that focus on developed markets overseas. This, given that the slowdown in Europe was a big factor that triggered concerns about the health of the global economy.

For his part, David Kotock, chief investment officer at Cumberland Advisors, says it is no surprise that investors are wary of domestic stocks, adding that investors are going through a "form of financial post-traumatic stress disorder."
