Leveraged loan fund outflows reach nearly $1B, led by mutual funds, 14th straight week of outflows


Cash outflows from bank loan funds increased to $946 million during the week ended Oct. 15, according to Lipper. The reading reflects mutual fund outflows of $869 million plus a $76 million outflow from the exchange-traded fund segment.

The latest reading is an uptick from an outflow of $825 million last week and it represents the 25th outflow in the past 27 weeks, for a net redemption of $15 billion over that span.

The trailing four-week average deepens to negative $897 million per week, from negative $807 million last week and negative $686 million two weeks ago. This is the largest average since a negative $944 million reading for the four weeks ended Aug. 24, 2011.

The year-to-date fund-flow reading pushes deeper into negative territory, at roughly $8 billion, based on a net withdrawal of $8.2 billion from mutual funds against a net inflow of $131 million to ETFs. In the comparable year-ago period, inflows totaled $45.9 billion, with 11% tied to ETFs.

The change due to market conditions was negative $829 million, versus total assets of $98.3 billion at the end of the observation period. The ETF segment comprises $7.4 billion of the total, or approximately 8%. – Joy Ferguson
