The global mutual fund industry is on pace for $850 billion in net inflows to stock and bond mutual funds in 2010, according to Strategic Insight. More than half of the flows will go to funds domiciled outside the U.S., the research firm said.

This would be a 4% decrease from the $890 billion that went into stock and bond funds worldwide in 2009, but ahead of the outflows in 2008 and the inflows of around $800 billion in each of 2006 and 2007.
