Sept. 30 (Bloomberg) -- Russia-focused funds had their second-biggest weekly outflow in two years, UralSib Financial Corp. said, citing EPFR Global Data.
The funds saw net outflows of $443 million in the week ending Sept. 28, the 12th consecutive week of declines, UralSib said.
Russia’s benchmark Micex Index has plunged 16 percent this quarter on concern the European debt crisis and a slowdown in the U.S. economy will hurt global growth and damp demand for oil, the country’s key export earner. The 30-stock gauge slid 0.8 percent today to 1,396.16.
