Dec 19 (Reuters) - Money manager Vanguard Group said inflows from customers into its mutual and exchange-traded funds totaled $130.4 billion in 2012 through the end of November.

The inflow exceeded the company's highest annual total ever and would be a record in the fund industry, Vanguard said in a statement on Wednesday.

Inflows continue to be "strong" in December, Vanguard spokesman John Woerth said. He declined to estimate a dollar total for the month.
