Fixed Income Still Dominates Mutual Fund Flows, With One Big Exception

News summary by MFWire's editors

Equity mutual fund flows still look pretty dour, unless you take into account ETFs. According to a research report from Jefferies & Company cited by Benzinga's Roger Nachman, one ETF was largely responsible for that break from the recent trend.

"Industry fund flows continue to generally favor fixed income funds our equities. However, this week marked an exception as domestic equity ETFs saw a sizable inflow into the SPDR S&P 500 ETF," Jefferies' analysts reportedly write, citing Lipper fund flow data. "For the week ended September 1, excluding ETF flows, equity funds experienced $0.58B in outflows ... Including ETF flows, equity funds experienced $6.0B in inflows ..."

In contrast, according to the Lipper data reportedly cited by the Jefferies report, taxable bond funds brought in $2.6 billion in net inflows ($3.9 billion including ETFs).
