(Reuters) - Global equity funds faced big outflows in the week to June 9, as investors were wary ahead of U.S. inflation data, spooked by worries that an upside surprise could prompt the Federal Reserve to start tapering its massive stimulus.

According to Refinitiv Lipper data, global equity funds faced net outflows of $12.8 billion, the biggest since the week ended April 28.

However, the outflows were mainly focussed on U.S. equity funds, which witnessed net sales of $17.5 billion, while Europe and Asian equity funds obtained inflows of $4.2 billion and $1.9 billion respectively.

Data released on Thursday showed U.S. consumer prices rose solidly in May, leading to the biggest annual increase in 13 years.

However, the jump was seen as not enough to change the Federal Reserve's view that rising consumer prices will be transitory or alter its easy monetary policy.

Investors sold $575 million in consumer discretionary sector funds and $288 million in utilities sector funds. Tech sector funds faced their first outflow in three weeks, the data showed.

However, financial sector funds had net purchases worth $1.5 billion, which was its second straight week of inflows.

In Asia, South Korean equity funds faced $2.2 billion worth of outflows on concerns that its central bank might tighten its monetary policy earlier than expected.

Meanwhile, global bond funds attracted $12.2 billion worth of net buying, despite worries over higher inflation levels.

Global money market funds also witnessed purchases worth a net $8.1 billion, recording inflows for the fifth straight week.
