On the flip side, October was a rough month for USCF, which suffered an estimated $368 million in net outflows, more than any other small fund firm and up from $169 million in September. Other big October outflows sufferers included: Manning & Napier, $365 million (down from $434 million); IVA, $259 million (down from $358 million); Causeway, $241 million (up from $13 million); and FMI, $238 million (up from $212 million).

USCF also led the small fund firm outflows pack proportionately last month, with estimated net October outflows equivalent to 8.5 percent of its AUM, up from 3.2 percent in September. Other big October outflows sufferers included: IVA, 8.3 percent (down from 10.4 percent); Manning, 6.7 percent (down from 7.3 percent); Robeco's Boston Partners, 5.3 percent (up from 4.9 percent); and Ashmore, 4.9 percent (up from 3.2 percent).
