Long-term funds had $55.1 billion of inflows in November, their strongest month since collecting $133.3 billion in January 2018. Money market inflows declined month-over-month to $39.9 billion from $75.7 billion as the Fed's three rate cuts this year may have dented demand. However, with $483.5 billion in year-to-date inflows, this remains by far the best year for money market inflows since the financial crisis. This total also remains well ahead of the $353.6 billion collected in 2019 for all long-term funds.
