International Stock Funds Take Lead Over U.S. Equities

Taxable bond funds maintain the overall top spot in terms of asset flows in April.

After four months during which U.S. and international-equity funds attracted similar inflows, international equity took the lead in the equity space with a little over $21 billion in total flows.

U.S. equity's winning streak seems to have waned, as the category group received only a meager $280 million in April 2017. It’s too early to tell if investors’ marked preference for international over domestic equity is a new trend or only a one-month stint.
