July 19 (Reuters) - Institutional and retail investors
bought into equity funds in the week ended July 18, as the
European debt crisis remained quiet and companies posted
better-than-expected earnings, data from Thomson Reuters' Lipper
service showed on Thursday.
Equity funds recorded net inflows of $6.089 billion.
Of that, $5.697 billion came from net buying of
exchange-traded funds, the data showed, a contrast to the net
outflows of $2 billion in the previous week.
