Fund Flow Summary: Week of January 19

Mutual fund flows slowed appreciably in the week leading up to the inauguration of Donald Trump and the European Central Bank's first policy meeting of 2017.

For the week leading into the inauguration of US President-elect Donald Trump and the European Central Bank's first policy meeting of 2017 saw mutual fund flows slow - in most cases - appreciably. Investor appetite for fund groups associated with risk assets was also subdued while flows into Gold Funds hit a 10-week high, Dividend Equity Funds snapped a four week run of outflows and Municipal Bond Funds posted consecutive weekly inflows for the first time since early October.

Overall, the week ending January 18 saw EPFR Global-tracked Bond Funds post collective net inflows of $4.4 billion, the bulk of which went to US Bond Funds, and Equity Funds took in $1.67 billion. Money Market Funds recorded an outflow of $28.4 billion for the week, with redemptions from US funds offsetting further commitments to ones with European mandates.
