Fund Flows

The Investment Company Institute is the national association of U.S. investment companies, including mutual funds, closed-end funds, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), and unit investment trusts (UITs).  Members of ICI manage total assets of $11.82 trillion and serve nearly 90 million shareholders.  Flow estimates are derived from data collected covering more than 95 percent of industry assets and are adjusted to represent industry totals.

Hybrid funds had the biggest inflows last week, bringing their YTD net flows to $32 billion.  However, the two extreme ends of the money flow spectrum in 2011 are fixed income funds, having pulled in a net $106 billion, and domestic equity funds, which have shed a net $84 billion.
