Improved investor confidence boosts long-term Ucits inflows

RELATED TOPICS​

Better than expected bank stress test results and economic climate in the Euro area contributed to improved investor confidence in July, leading to a jump in net inflows into long-term Ucits, research by the European Fund and Asset Management Association shows.

Ucits asset flows reached net inflows of EUR5bn in July, compared to net outflows of EUR31bn in June. 

This development was driven by a strong rebound in net inflows into long-term Ucits (Ucits excluding money market funds) to EUR16bn after net outflows in May and June, due to large inflows into bond funds (EUR9bn) and equity funds (EUR5bn).

Money market funds experienced their 11th month of net outflows, recording net outflows of EUR11bn in July, albeit at a slower pace than the EUR31bn in net outflows recorded in June.

Special funds reserved for institutional investors continued to record large net inflows in June (EUR7bn). Real estate funds also recorded net inflows of EUR1bn.

Total Ucits increased in July by 0.7 per cent, whilst total non-Ucits rose 0.5 per cent compared to June.
