Expanded eVestment Traditional Asset Flows report offers insights across more asset classes and geographies

RELATED TOPICS​

Long-only asset managers reported Q1 2019 institutional assets under management (AUM) of USD26.8 trillion according to the latest figures released by eVestment. 

The company’s expanded Traditional Asset Flows report, which offers a wider and broader view of the traditional institutional investment industry compared to previous editions,  reveals that net institutional flows totalled -USD22.8 billion in Q1 2019 and -USD499.0 billion over the past four quarters.

Fixed income managers, excluding cash management strategies, reported net institutional inflows of +USD22.6 billion in the most recent quarter. Despite the infusion of fresh assets, the four-quarter total beginning Q2 2018 remained in firmly negative territory, measuring -USD104.9 billion, largely due to widespread redemptions in Q4 2018.

Allocations were pervasive across passive strategies in 1Q. On a geographic basis, Passive US (+USD25.9 billion), international (+USD10.5 billion) and emerging markets strategies (+USD6.0 billion) saw the largest gains while global (-USD9.1 billion) and UK (-USD4.0 billion) strategies led in terms of outflows.

UK-domiciled investors were net redeemers from long-only managers investing in domestic assets during the most recent quarter. UK equity managers saw outflows of -USD2.4 bn and UK fixed income -USD3.0 billion in Q1 2019.

Across eVestment’s China A-Shares, Greater China, Overseas China and Hong Kong equity universes, Q1 2019 institutional flows totalled +USD1.5 billion and +USD8.8 billion for the past year.

Active Japan all cap managers experienced their fifth consecutive quarter of net institutional outflows, at -USD10.2 billion over the period and -USD2.1 billion in 1Q’19 alone. Passive Japan strategies again fared better than active all cap managers, but allocations were still roughly flat at +USD0.3 billion during the most recent quarter.

Australia equity managers experienced net institutional redemptions of -USD1.7 billion during the most recent quarter, erasing the +USD1.6 billion in inflows gained in Q4 2018.
