This article reports that tax-free money market funds had a net outflow of $2.85 billion during the week ended as their total assets sank to $325.02 billion, iMoneyNet Inc. reported. The losses were largely driven by redemptions from institutional investors, who pulled a net $2.02 billion from the funds, according to the Westborough, Massachusetts-based fund tracker. Meanwhile, taxable money market funds suffered a $12.81 billion net outflow during the weekly reporting period ending, also due primarily to institutional investors, who drained the funds of a net $10.3 billion.
