Investors' interest in equity markets continued unabated in the latest week, with U.S. and Japanese stock market fund flows accelerating to multi-week highs at the expense of investment in fixed income funds, BofA said on Friday.

While global equity funds attracted $18.7 billion in the week to Wednesday, U.S.-focused ones took in $9 billion for their largest inflows in four weeks. Flows to Japanese stocks were the biggest in eight weeks at $1.5 billion, BofA said, analyzing data from EPFR.

Global money market funds attracted heavy investment flows in the week to June 2, as investors were cautious about the likelihood of global central banks tapering their monetary stimulus policies amid a rise in inflation levels.

According to Refinitiv Lipper data, money market funds had net purchases of $20.5 billion, making a fourth successive week of inflows.
