This article draws from Morningstar Direct data for August 2022 open-end mutual fund and ETF flows, excluding money-market funds and funds of funds. (Other asset management products, like CITs and SMAs, are also not included.) More specifically, this article focuses on the 166 firms (down from 169 in August 2021) with between $1 billion and $10 billion each in long-term fund AUM.

Small firms had $521 billion in total long-term fund AUM as of August 31, 2022, accounting for 2.22 percent of overall industry long-term fund AUM. That compares with $517 billion and 2.14 on July 31, 2022, and with $548 billion and 2.02 percent on August 31, 2021.

78 of those small fund firms brought in net inflows last month, up from 63 in July 2022 but down from 100 in August 2021.

Innovator kept the lead last month for a fifth month in a row, thanks to an estimated $445 million in net August 2022 inflows, up month-over-month from $341 million in July 2022 and up year-over-year from $16 million in August 2021. Other big August 2022 inflows winners included: Credit Suisse, $225 million (up M/M from $75 million, up Y/Y from $53 million); Catalyst, $174 million (down M/M from $191 million, up Y/Y from $73 million); AXS, $163 million (up M/M from $64 million in net outflows, up Y/Y from $34 million in net inflows); and Abbey Capital, $146 million (down M/M from $148 million, up Y/Y from $41 million).

AXS took the lead proportionately last month, thanks to estimated net August inflows equivalent to 11.9 percent of its AUM. Other big inflows winners included: Absolute Investment Advisers, 6.4 percent; PFM, 5.5 percent; Innovator, 5.4 percent; and Abbey, 4.8 percent.
