IIF portfolio flows show August slump 0

Aug 28, 2014

     
   Source: IIF  
Capital flows into emerging markets fell to just $9bn in August according to data from the Institute of International Finance. That is down from a monthly average of $38bn between May and July. 

While emerging Europe, Africa and the Middle East had outflows, flows to Latin America were positive, but at their lowest since April, according to the data. 

The IIF pointed to weaker risk appetite at the start of August and a dearth of bond and equity sales over the month as contributors to the slump in flows. 

The IIF’s flows figures indicate non-resident investments in emerging markets, and follow balance of payments methodology. That differs from EPFR data, which tracks flows into investment funds.
