Municipal debt funds stayed on track for the 18th consecutive week of net inflows, this time for $0.9 billion, according to Tom Roseen, head of research services at Lipper and author of the firm’s weekly U.S. fund flow data commentary.

“Of all the groups, muni debt funds have been attractor of continuous asset flows.  We’ve not only seen money coming in but we’ve seen it increasing over the last 18 weeks as well,” Roseen said.  “Yields for quite a few of the classifications on an after-tax adjusted basis still are outpacing the funds’ taxable brethren.”
