    NEW YORK, June 21 (Reuters) - U.S.-based money market funds
posted $51 billion of net outflows for the week ended Wednesday,
the largest cash withdrawal since 2011 and the seventh largest
ever, according to Lipper data on Thursday.
    The drawdown in money fund assets, which companies use as
alternatives to bank accounts to manage their cash, likely
stemmed from two factors: corporate tax receipts and investor
payment on Treasury supply, said Pat Keon, senior research
analyst at Thomson Reuters Lipper.
    Last week, corporations were sending cash to the government
ahead of a quarterly tax deadline. On June 15, the Treasury said
it received $26.0 billion in corporate taxes, compared with
$42.2 billion a year earlier.
    Moreover, the Treasury raised about $43 billion in new cash
as investors settled on what they bought at last week's Treasury
auctions, which included $68 billion worth of three-year,
10-year and 30-year debt.
    Meanwhile, U.S.-based equity funds posted $1.27 billion of
net outflows in the week ended Wednesday, marking the third
consecutive week of cash withdrawals, Lipper said.
    The majority of those outflows came from U.S.-based equity
exchange-traded funds, which posted net outflows of $5.8
billion. Conversely, U.S.-based equity mutual funds attracted
$4.6 billion of net new cash for the same period, according to
    Emerging-market funds saw another volatile week. Investors
pulled $4.36 billion of net cash from U.S.-based emerging market
equity funds and $452 million from U.S.-based emerging market
debt funds, according to Lipper data.
