This article draws from Morningstar Direct data for February 2022 mutual fund and ETF flows, excluding money market funds and funds of funds. (Other asset management products, like collective trusts and SMAs, are also not included.) More specifically, this article focuses on the 26 firms (up from 25 in January) with between $100 billion and $500 billion each in long-term fund AUM.

Large fund firms had a combined $5.174 trillion in long-term fund AUM as of February 28, 2022, and they accounted for 19.73 percent of overall industry long-term fund AUM. That compares with $5.137 trillion and 19.23 percent on January 31.

Eight large fund firms brought in net long-term fund inflows last month, down from 12 in January.

Charles Schwab kept the lead for the fifth month in a row, thanks to an estimated $4.508 billion in net February 2022 inflows, down month-over-month from $4.581 billion in January 2022 but up year-over-yeaer from $3.703 billion in February 2021.

On the flip side, Allianz's Pimco took the outflows lead among large fund firms last month, thanks to an estimated $2.032 billion in net February 2022 outflows, up M/M from $971 million in January 2022 but down Y/Y from $2.994 billion in net February 2021 inflows. Other big February 2022 outflows sufferers included: TCW (including MetWest), $1.739 billion (up M/M from $920 million, up Y/Y from $992 million); Lord Abbett, $1.724 billion (up M/M from $569 million, down Y/Y from $2.317 billion in net inflows); Morgan Stanley (including Eaton Vance and Calvert), $1.33 billion (up M/M from $1.049 billion, down Y/Y from $696 million in net inflows); and PGIM, $1.167 billion (down M/M from $807 million in net inflows, down Y/Y $1.119 billion in net inflows).
