Of the 10 money fund families tracked by the M* team, only three brought in net inflows last month. BlackRock took the lead with an estimated $14.119 billion in net inflows (equivalent to three percent of its money fund AUM), up from $6.046 billion in August. The other September money fund inflows winners were: Wells Fargo, $5.067 billion (down from $9.312 billion); and Morgan Stanley, $2.644 billion (up from $2.02 billion in net outflows).
In Q3, only money fund firms netted inflows: BlackRock brought in $19.473 billion (five percent of AUM), while Wells brought in $19.372 billion (nine percent of AUM).
Year-to-date as of the end of September, Fidelity topped the money fund inflows list, thanks to an estimated $92.249 billion in net inflows, equivalent to 11.3 percent of its AUM. Other big YTD inflows winners included: Wells, $90.656 billion; and BlackRock, $78.896 billion.
On the flip side, September was another rough month for Goldman Sachs' money fund business, which again led the pack, this time thanks to an estimated $53.523 billion in net September outflows, equivalent to 17 percent of its money fund AUM and up from $50.025 billion in August. Other big September outflows sufferers included: J.P. Morgan, $15.886 billion (up from $1.839 billion); and Federated Hermes, $15.697 billion (down from $625 million in net inflows).
Goldman also led the Q3 money fund outflows pack, thanks to an estimated $90.835 billion in net outflows, equivalent to 29 percent of its money fund AUM. Other big Q3 outflows sufferers included: Fidelity, $42.374 billion; and J.P. Morgan, $28.241 billion.
Schwab is the only money fund that has suffered net outflows YTD: $11.545 billion, equivalent to 11 percent of its money fund AUM.

That's compared with $10.736 billion in net long-term fund inflows in September.
In Q3, money funds suffered an estimated $182.682 billion in net outflows, equivalent to five percent of their combined AUM. Yet despite that, in the first nine months of 2020 money funds brought in an estimated $572.431 billion in net inflows, equivalent to 16.3 percent of their combined AUM.
