US Leveraged Loan Funds See $731M Retail Cash Inflow

U.S. loan funds recorded an inflow of $731 million for the week ended May 16, according to Lipper weekly reporters only. This marks the largest inflow since $863 million for the week ended March 15, 2017.

It’s the thirteenth consecutive week of inflows for U.S. loan funds, for a total inflow of roughly $5.65 billion over that span.

Mutual funds drove the bulk of the weekly gain for a fourth consecutive week, with an inflow of about $518 million, while ETFs took in roughly $214 million.

The year-to-date total inflow is now $6.3 billion.

The four-week trailing average rose to $519 million, from $478 million last week, marking the 17th consecutive week in the black.

Total assets swelled to roughly $102.3 billion at the end of the observation period, which is the highest level since the week ended Sept. 24, 2014, when total assets were reported at $102.4 billion.

The change due to market conditions this past week was a decrease of $4 million. ETFs represent about 13.3% of total assets, at about $13.6 billion. — James Passeri
