U.S. mutual fund investors spurred equity funds for the eighth consecutive week, withdrawing $2.4 billion from the funds for the week ended Oct. 4, according to U.S. weekly fund flow data compiled by Lipper.

Domestic equity funds bore the brunt of the outflows, with $2.6 billion withdrawn, noted Jeff Tjornehoj, head of Lipper Americas Research. “Even Lipper’s highly favored Equity Income Funds group saw another outflow for the week, albeit a scant half-million dollars’ worth,” Tjornehoj said.
