U.S. Stock Mutual Funds Suffer Biggest Weekly Outflow Since 2011

  • Most of redemptions were from funds that buy domestic shares
  • Withdrawals came in a period when equities were little changed

Investors withdrew $12.5 billion from U.S stock mutual funds last week, the biggest redemption in more than four years.

About $12.1 billion came out of domestic stock funds, according to a statement Wednesday by the Investment Company Institute, a Washington-based trade group. Equity funds that invest outside the U.S. saw withdrawals of $461 million. The equity redemptions for the period ended Nov. 4 were the largest since the week ended Aug. 10, 2011, when $27.8 billion was pulled.
