Leveraged loan funds see 92nd straight week of cash inflows, totaling $66.3B

US leveraged loan fund flows

Retail-cash inflows to bank loan mutual funds and exchange-traded funds totaled $327 million for the week ended March 19, according to Lipper. Off the total, roughly 16% was tied to the ETF segment.

This is the third lowest weekly total of the year, and it’s down from $574 million last week and $358 million two weeks ago. Retail-cash flows to the asset class have settled into a lower range following a hot start to 2014 as there has not been one week over $700 million since January. The four-week trailing average dipped to $483 million, from $504 million last week and $510 million two weeks ago.

Still, the net inflow streak is now at 92 weeks, with a total of $66.3 billion over that span, by the weekly reporters only.

Year-to-date inflows total $6.5 billion, of which $1.04 billion is ETF-related, or 16% of the sum. In the comparable year-ago period, inflows were $12 billion, with 12% tied to ETFs.

Last year’s full-year inflows totaled $52.3 billion, 10% of which was tied to ETFs.

The change due to market conditions was negative $18.9 million. Total assets stood at $108.9 billion at the end of the observation period, with ETFs comprising $8.4 billion of the total, or approximately 8%. – Jon Hemingway
