U.S. high-yield funds recorded an inflow of $586 million for the week ended June 7, according to weekly reporters to Lipper only. This is the second straight week of inflows into the asset class for a total of $1.1 billion over that period.
Mutual funds made up the bulk of the inflow this week, at $355 million, while $231 million flowed into ETFs. That compares to last week’s exit of $617 million from mutual funds against a $1.1 billion inflow into ETFs.
The year-to-date total outflow is now $4.9 billion, reflecting a $4.8 billion exodus from mutual funds and an $85 million exit from ETFs.
The four-week trailing average is now in positive territory, after being in the red for five straight weeks, climbing to positive $297 million from negative $280.5 million last week.
The change due to market conditions this past week was a rise of $154 million, making four consecutive weeks in the black. Total assets at the end of the observation period were $207 billion. ETFs account for about 23% of the total, at $47.6 billion. — James Passeri
