Abstract: Abstract Employing monthly data for 53 countries between 1996 and 2015, we investigate the relationship between international fund flows and exchange rate dynamics. We find strong co-movement between funds flows (as measured with the EPFR Global data base) and bilateral real exchange rates vis-à-vis the USD. This holds both for equity flows and bond flows. However, bond flows have a more significant relationship with RER appreciation than equity flows in developing countries, while in developed countries equity flows play a more important role. Under a more flexible exchange rate regime the real exchange rate appreciation associated with fund flows is higher.
