Tax-exempt money market funds ended a string of outflows as they swept up $476.9 million of new cash the week ending Oct. 4, boosting total net assets to $332.1 billion, according to the Money Fund Report, a service of iMoneyNet.com.

The positive activity follows $2.73 billion of outflows last week, when money funds finished with $331.62 billion. That drop came on the heels of a $2.71 billion loss in the week ending Sept. 20, when the funds finished with $334.36 billion, and $1.08 billion of outflows for the week before, when they finished at $337.07 billion.
