Investors still clamoring for floating-rate funds

|By:, SA News Editor

Falling yields this year have failed to boost demand for Treasurys, with Lipper reporting $102M withdrawn from government bond funds in the week ended yesterday.

A hot sector in 2013 stays hot though. Despite slipping rates, adjustable-rate loan funds attracted $730M last week, the 84th consecutive week of inflows.

The most popular ETF vehicles for adjustable-rate exposure (credit exposure also) are the bank loan funds: BKLN, SRLN, SNLN, FTSL.
