Inflows across risk assets slow down
Inflows into high-grade and government bond funds continued to slow for a second week. Amid risk of a 'second wave', the rally in risk assets has paused. The central bank driven euphoria seems to be in consolidation mode. Only two weeks ago, investors across Europe were adding risk at an unprecedented rate. However, the last two weeks saw a marked slowdown of inflows across credit and EM debt space. 


Over the past week…


High grade funds recorded their 12th inflow in a row, although the w-o-w pace has slowed over the last two weeks after registering record inflows in early June. Inflows into IG ETFs have followed a similar dynamic, with last week's inflow the lowest since the last week of March. 


High yield funds enjoyed another inflow, the 13th in a row, with the w-o-w pace stabilizing at around $1.5bn. Looking into the domicile breakdown (chart 13), European, global, and US-focused funds all recorded inflows, with the former underperforming.


Government bond funds recorded an inflow, the second in a row. Money market funds saw a small outflow, the first in five weeks. Fixed income funds enjoyed their 12th inflow in a row, the smallest in 11 weeks. Equity funds recorded an inflow, only partly offsetting last week's strong outflow, in a sign investors' sentiment for European risk assets remain heavily dependent on the evolution of the health situation worldwide.

Global EM debt funds recorded their second weekly outflow in a row. Commodity funds recorded a strong outflow, the largest since July '13.
On the duration front, inflows were recorded across the IG curve. Front-end funds continued to enjoy inflows for the fourth week in a row whilst long-term funds outperformed as investors seek quality yield, amid record low yields and lack of inflation.
