Mutual funds made up the bulk of this week’s outflow, at $2.6 billion, while $1.8 billion exited ETFs.
The year-to-date total outflow is now roughly $13 billion, with a $14.7 billion outflow from mutual funds outweighing a roughly $1.7 billion inflow to ETFs.
The four-week trailing average is in the red for the third straight week, widening to negative $1.5 billion from negative $536 million last week.
The change due to market conditions this past week was a decrease of $1.9 billion. Total assets at the end of the observation period were $206.6 billion. ETFs account for about 24% of the total, at roughly $50 billion. — James Passeri
