LONDON, Aug 9 (Reuters) - Precious metal funds recorded the fourth largest weekly inflows ever and investment-grade funds sucked in money, Bank of America Merrill Lynch said on Friday, as escalating trade tensions and global growth concerns prompted a dash for .safe havens

A total of $2.3 billion poured into precious metal funds in the week to Wednesday, while investment-grade bond funds notched up their 29th week of inflows, pulling in $6.7 billion, said BAML citing EPFR data.
