(Reuters) - U.S. investors ramped up their selling of equity funds in the week to Jan. 26, hit by a selloff in tech stocks, and the rising geopolitical tensions between Russia and Ukraine.

According to Refinitiv data, investors offloaded U.S. equity funds worth $9.42 billion in the week - more than twice the amount it offloaded the previous week.

The S&P 500 slumped during the week, as a selloff in technology stocks ahead of the Federal Reserve's policy meeting overshadowed upbeat results from blue-chip companies including IBM (NYSE:IBM) and 3M.

In its latest policy update on Wednesday, the Fed indicated it was likely to raise rates in March, as widely expected, and reaffirmed plans to end its pandemic-era bond purchases that month before launching a significant reduction in its asset holdings.

U.S. growth funds witnessed outflows of $11.75 billion, the most in seven weeks, while investors poured $465 million into value funds. (Graphic: Fund flows: US growth and value funds, https://fingfx.thomsonreuters.com/gfx/mkt/xmvjojklepr/Fund%20flows%20US%20growth%20and%20value%20funds.jpg)

Among sector funds, industrials, real estate, and technology funds posted outflows of over $500 million each. On the other hand, financials and utilities sector funds received inflows of $450 million and $407 million respectively.

Meanwhile, U.S. bond funds saw net selling of $7.04 billion, the biggest in six weeks.

Investors sold U.S. municipal bond funds worth $1.61 billion, which was the biggest outflow since April 2020, while U.S. taxable bond funds posted outflows of $5.38 billion. However, U.S. general domestic taxable fixed income funds and loan participation funds obtained $2.89 billion and $2 billion.

U.S. money market funds received $25.46 billion in net buying, after three consecutive weeks of outflows.
