U.S. Bond Funds Have Record Redemptions

U.S. bond funds and ETFs saw redemptions of $61.7 billion this month, nearly 50 percent higher than previous monthly record from October 2008.

U.S.-listed bond mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) saw record monthly redemptions of $61.7 billion through June 24 amid signs the country’s central bank may scale back its unprecedented stimulus.

The redemptions surpassed the previous monthly record of $41.8 billion, set in October 2008, according to an e-mailed statement by TrimTabs Investment Research in Sausalito, California. Investors withdrew $52.8 billion from bond mutual funds and $8.9 billion from ETFs during the period, said Richard Stern, a spokesman for TrimTabs.
