Actively Managed Mutual Funds See Outlfows

News summary by MFWire's editors

Actively managed equity mutual funds have lost their sway with investors in recent years, paving the way for other asset classes to benefit from inflows, Bloomberg Businessweek reports.

Specifically, the pub said that domestic equity-focused mutual funds have lost an some $8 billion to redemptions this year through June 29, putting them on track for an unprecedented five straight years of withdrawals, according to data from the Investment Company Institute. Over the 10 years through May 31, investors withdrew $51 billion more from domestic equity funds than they deposited.

On the flip side, index funds that invest in U.S. stocks reportedly had positive inflows every year since 2001, according to Morningstar, while bond funds, international stock funds, and exchange-traded funds have also experienced inflows.

Robert Doll, chief equity strategist at BlackRock [see profile], told the pub that “bonds have gone up for two decades and people have gotten comfortable with them.”
