(Reuters) - U.S. equity funds posted enormous outflows in the week to December 7 as investors fretted over the Federal Reserve's rate hikes, with data showing a rebound in employment and a pick up in the services sector.

According to data from Refinitiv Lipper, U.S. equity funds recorded withdrawals of $26.66 billion, the biggest weekly outflow since April 2021.

Investors were also worried as the biggest U.S. banks including Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS), J.P. Morgan, and Bank of America (NYSE:BAC), warned of a recession as inflation threatens consumer demand.

U.S. equity growth funds saw $9.91 billion worth of withdrawals while value funds witnessed net disposals of $2.03 billion, as selling continued for a third straight week in each segment.

U.S. taxable bond funds had net purchases of $886 million after three weeks of selling in a row, although municipal bond funds suffered small outflows, amounting to $53 million.

U.S. investors purchased high-yield bond funds of $318 million and government bond funds of $1.06 billion in their biggest weekly net purchase since Nov. 16. Still, general domestic taxable fixed income funds recorded $794 million worth of outflow.
