CHICAGO, June 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Morningstar, Inc. (NASDAQ: MORN), a leading provider of independent investment research, today reported estimated U.S. mutual fund asset flows for May 2014. Investors added $23.4 billion to long-term mutual funds in May. With the stock market at all-time highs, equity investors continued to show more interest in international and sector funds than their domestic counterparts. Additional transfers of assets from mutual funds to collective investment trusts (CITs) at Fidelity contributed to some of the $6.9 billion outflow from U.S.-equity funds, but market appreciation kept assets in the category group at near-record levels. Morningstar estimates net flow by computing the change in assets not explained by the performance of the fund. Click here for a full explanation of Morningstar's methodology.
