Net inflows into UCITS and alternative investment funds (AIF) totalled EUR52 billion in May, down from EUR65 billion in April, according to the European Fund and Asset Management Association’s latest Investment Funds Industry Fact Sheet.

Net inflows into UCITS amounted to EUR41 billion, down from EUR44 billion in April. The decrease in UCITS net sales was caused by lower net sales of bond funds.
 
Long-term UCITS (UCITS excluding money market funds) recorded net inflows of EUR24 billion, compared to EUR33 billion in April. 
 
Equity funds experienced a turnaround in flows, increasing from net outflows of EUR1 billion in April to net inflows of EUR3 billion in May. 
 
Net inflows into bond funds decreased to EUR14 billion from EUR23 billion in April, while Multi-asset funds recorded net sales of EUR5 billion, compared to EUR6 billion in April, and net sales of UCITS money market funds increased to EUR17 billion, from EUR11 billion in April.  
 
AIF recorded net inflows of EUR11 billion, compared to EUR21 billion in April.
 
Net assets of UCITS increased by 1.9 per cent in May to EUR8,290 billion, and AIF net assets increased by 1.6 per cent to EUR5,229 billion. 
 
Overall, total net assets of European investment funds increased by 1.8 per cent in May to stand at EUR13,519 billion at the end of the month.  
 
Bernard Delbecque (pictured), senior director for economics and research at EFAM, says: “After three months of negative outflows, equity funds achieved again positive net sales in May.”
