This statement shows the inflows and outflows of real money (cash or assets) from operating, investing or financing activities. “Flow of Fund” has two different meanings, one for accounting purposes and for investment purposes. Medoroga, it can be used with reference to the statement of cash flow, which GAAP requires from 1971 until 1987. Investment-wise, it belongs to the investors and analysts to track the flow of funds in different sectors or types of assets, – the net flow of a bond Fund during a particular month, for example on the market.
