Equity funds, meanwhile, witnessed a small outflow of $33 million last week, suggesting some profit-taking as global stocks rallied to record highs last week.
An analysis of 12,745 equity funds, based on Lipper’s sector classification, showed technology funds attracted inflows of $1.8 billion, followed by $1.7 billion in financials and $631 million in industrials.
