This article draws from Morningstar Direct data on October 2021 open-end mutual fund and ETF flows, excluding money-market funds and funds of funds. (Other asset management products, like CITs and SMAs, are also not included.) More specifically, this article focuses on the 79 firms (up from 77 in September 2021 and 76 in October 2020) with between $10 billion and $100 billion each in long-term fund AUM.

Midsize firms had $2.969 trillion in combined long-term fund AUM as of October 31, 2021, and they accounted for 10.68 percent of overall industry long-term fund AUM. That compares with $2.816 trillion and 10.57 percent on September 30, 2021, and $2.833 trillion and 13.59 percent on October 31, 2020. 35 midsize firms brought in net long-term inflows in October 2021, up from 34 in September 2021 but level with 35 in October 2020.

KraneShares captured the lead among midsize firms last month, thanks to an estimated $1.674 billion in net October 2021 inflows, up month-over-month from $945 million in September 2021 and up year-over-year from $479 million in October 2020. Other big October 2021 inflows winners included: Mirae (including Global X), $1.28 billion (down M/M from $1.442 billion, up Y/Y from $629 million); WisdomTree, $1.231 billion (up M/M from $261 million, up Y/Y from $158 million); DoubleLine, $1.17 billion (up M/M from $110 million in net outflows, up Y/Y from $621 million in net outflows); and Great-West, $773 million (down M/M from $2.601 billion, up Y/Y from $410 million in net outflows).

KraneShares also took the lead proportionately last month, thanks to estimated net October 2021 inflows equivalent to 11.1 percent of its AUM. Other big inflows winners included: Mercer, 4.7 percent; Great-West, 3/1 percent; GQG, 3.1 percent; and Mirae, 2.9 percent.

Mirae remains the midsize pack inflow winner year-to-date as of October 31, 2021, thanks to an estimated $17.617 billion in net inflows. Other big YTD inflows winners included: Ark, $11.423 billion; and KraneShares, $11.297 billion.

Ark led the midsize inflows pack for the 12-month period ending October 31, 2021, thanks to an estimated $22.475 billion in net inflows. Other big inflows winners included: Mirae, $20.694 billion; and VanEck, $12.362 billion.

On the flip side, last month was a rough one for Rafferty's Direxion, which led the midsize outflows pack thanks to an estimated $959 million in net October 2021 outflows, down M/M from $961 million in net September 2021 inflows but up Y/Y from $626 million in net October 2020 outflows.
