(Reuters) - Outflows from global equity funds in the week ended Dec. 7 hit a three-month high on fears that interest rates could stay higher for longer than expected amid mounting worries about a recession next year.

According to Refinitiv Lipper data, investors offloaded a net $22.03 billion worth of global equity funds, marking their biggest weekly net selling since Sept. 7.

Investors were also worried as the biggest U.S. banks including Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan and Bank of America warned of a recession as inflation threatens consumer demand.

Investors sold a net $26.65 billion in U.S. equity funds, although they purchased European and Asian equity funds worth $3.41 billion and $990 million, respectively.

Among equity sector funds, tech, financials and consumer discretionary witnessed outflows of $1.04 billion, $702 million and $523 million, respectively.
