During the month of November, investors deposited $100 billion net globally into equity/mixed, bond and other long-term mutual funds, SI said in an announcement. Fixed-income products continued to dominate and accounted for two-thirds of the total year-to-date contributions, mostly driven by U.S. investors switching to higher-yielding investments (see “Bond Funds See Record Inflows in 2009”).
SI’s Global FlowWatch shows stock funds also attracted net new commitments of $225 billion through November 2009, according to the announcement.
Money-market programs experienced net redemptions in all regions except for Asia during this period, totaling $590 billion of outflows worldwide.
