Mentioned: , , , , ,

The short-term bond Morningstar Category has seen increased inflows in the past couple of years--and in September, it took in more money than any other category. That makes sense given investor worries about future interest rate increases. Perhaps more surprising is that a lot of this money has gone to actively managed funds, reversing a previous trend where short-term bond fund investors favored cheaper passive vehicles. We looked at this shift and dove into some of the more interesting funds receiving net inflows.
