American rate lift fears weigh on fund flows

September 2, 2016

The party seemed to be waning for some popular investments for the latest week, with traders  trimming exposure to American-based funds injected in utilities stocks, developing-market bonds as well as gold as Lipper data revealed on Thursday.

Investors' repositioning in the week through August 31 kicked in as remarks by some monetary policymakers seemed to suppose that an American interest rate lift might soon be in the cards.

According to Lipper data, investors have already withdrawn up to $585 million from precious-metals commodities funds, including the SPDR Gold Shares, the greatest weekly outflows for those funds since December.

Emerging-market debt funds recorded approximately $51 million in outflows, a tiny figure, though we’re observing the category's first withdrawals since mid-June after a couple of weeks of market losses. Additionally, riskier high-yield junk bond funds reported up to $387 million in outflows over the weekly period, right after three straight weeks of attracting new funds.
