Equity mutual funds have reported positive inflows for 15 months in a row in July, the highest ever, surpassing the cumulative flows of Rs 98,800 crore reported between October 1999 to April 2014. This indicates a strong shift of money towards equities and investors are moving away from physical assets like gold and real estate. Domestic gold prices are close to the levels last seen in 2011 and the real estate sector is going through a price correction. As real rates are likely to remain positive, more money will flow to financial assets like stocks, mutual funds and bonds.
