- The $13.8 billion increase in flows in July compared to June was primarily attributable to a spike in taxable bond inflows, which more than doubled to $23.6 billion from the previous month.
- U.S. stock outflows declined slightly to $8.2 billion from $8.5 billion in June. If ETF inflows were included, then U.S. stock outflows were just $700 million in July.
- Diversified emerging-market equity funds took in over $1.3 billion in July, but momentum has been slowing since February when the category welcomed nearly $3.2 billion in new money.
- PIMCO ended Vanguard's run at the top of the monthly leader board, absorbing nearly $6.6 billion in new money in July led by its Total Return fund, which accounted for $2.1 billion in inflows. On the flip side, the American Funds extended its consecutive-outflows streak to 37 months with nearly $4.2 billion exiting the family.
