BlackRock kept the lead last month, bringing in an estimated $10.297 billion in net money fund inflows, down from $14.119 billion in September. Other big October money fund inflows winners included: Morgan Stanley, $7.314 billion (up from $2.644 billion); and Fidelity, $4.449 billion (up from $13.832 billion in net outflows).

Year-to-date as of the end of October, Fidelity kept the money fund inflows lead, thanks to an estimated $96.698 billion in net inflows. Other big YTD money fund inflows winners included: Wells Fargo, $92.686 billion; and BlackRock, $89.193 billion.
