(Reuters) – Global equities led fund inflows in the seven days to Jan. 13, Refinitiv Lipper data showed, bolstered by expectations of U.S. stimulus measures and extended bets on global economic recovery.
Investors purchased $26.1 billion in equity funds in the period, the highest in four weeks, the data showed.
Bond funds also saw a higher inflow of $22 billion, driven by higher U.S. yields.
