The inflows to Vanguard reflect the industry trend of money flowing out of active and into passively managed funds. Six of the top 10 funds receiving new money year-to-date through July are managed by Vanguard. Dimensional saw assets flow relatively evenly into several of its funds, notably its emerging markets and international varieties. DoubleLine's mortgage-focused Total Return bond fund took nearly three-fourths of flows.
About a third of Franklin Templeton's net outflows were out of its Global Bond fund (returning -6.3% as of the end of July), with the majority of the balance coming out of its Income and Global Discovery funds.
