Retail investors withdraw $2.57B from US high yield bond funds

Retail investors took a big step back from the U.S. high-yield market over the past week, withdrawing a net $2.57 billion from the segment, according to Lipper. This is the second straight outflow—there was a $212 million withdrawal the week ended May 8—after net inflows throughout much of 2019's first four months.

High-yield fund flows US

High yield mutual funds and ETFs each saw withdrawals over the past week. Funds saw an outflow of $1.86 billion, while ETFs saw a $711 million outflow. The recent activity brings the four-week average to an $821 million outflow, compared to a $97 inflow the previous week. 

The change due to market conditions for the week ended May 15 was negative $1.3 billion, the largest drop for that figure since Dec. 26. 

Year to date, U.S. high yield funds have seen a net $11 billion inflow. Assets at those funds now stand at $204 billion, of which $46.9 billion come from ETFs, per Lipper weekly reporters. —Tim Cross
