Yesterday Chicago-based investment research specialist Morningstar released its "Morningstar Direct Asset Flows Commentary: United States" report for December 2016, which includes numbers for the full calendar year, too. (See this article for a deeper dive into the December flows.) Markets research senior analyst Alina Lamy and Morningstar Direct editor Tom Lauricella worked on the report.

Vanguard [profile] brought in $277.257 billion* in net mutual fund and ETF inflows in 2016, putting it at number one. The other big net inflow winners last year were: BlackRock [profile] (including iShares [profile]), $99.484 billion; State Street Global Advisors (SSgA [profile]), $54.712 billion; Dimensional Fund Advisors (DFA [profile]), $21.481 billion; and Schwab [profile], $15.107 billion.

Industrywide, long-term, active mutual funds suffered $340.137 billion in net outflows last year, and money market funds suffered $35.452 billion in net outflows. Passive funds brought in $504.776 billion in net inflows.

Within long-term, active funds, taxable bond funds brought in $46.327 billion in net inflows in 2016. Muni bond funds brought in $26.28 billion, and commodities funds brought in $3.366 billion.

On the flip side, active, long term U.S. equity funds suffered $263.79 billion in net outflows last year. $59.8 billion net flowed out of international equity funds, $53.531 billion out of allocation funds, $31.819 billion out of sector equity funds, and $7.169 billion out of alternative funds.
