    NEW YORK, Sept 6 (Reuters) - Investors' renewed appetite for
risk came back with a vengeance during the last week of August,
as equity funds had estimated inflows of $8.19 billion, compared
to estimated outflows of $1.81 billion in the previous week,
Investment Company Institute (ICI) data showed on Wednesday.
    For the week ended Aug. 30, domestic equity funds had
estimated inflows of $3.68 billion, and world equity funds had
estimated inflows of $4.51 billion, according to the trade
group.
    Investors also put money to work in fixed-income markets.
Bond funds had estimated inflows of $5.36 billion for the week,
compared to estimated inflows of $5.31 billion during the
previous week. Taxable bond funds saw estimated inflows of $4.61
billion, and municipal bond funds had estimated inflows of $750
million.
    Commodity funds - which are ETFs (both registered and not
registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940) that invest
primarily in commodities, currencies, and futures - had
estimated inflows of $982 million for the week, compared to
estimated inflows of $604 million in the previous week.
