Investment fund assets reach EUR17.5trn

RELATED TOPICS​

Investment fund assets worldwide increased three per cent in the second quarter to reach EUR17.5trn, according to statistics from the European Fund and Asset Management Association.



Enduring net withdrawals from money market funds continued to offset positive net sales of long-term funds. 

Consequently, net flows to all funds remained negative in the second quarter, although less so than during the first quarter at EUR14bn compared to EUR40bn.
 
Net inflows to long-term funds (all funds excluding money market funds) reduced to EUR180bn in the second quarter, from EUR254bn in the previous quarter. A decline in net inflows into bond funds (from EUR122bn to EUR83bn) and equity funds (from EUR54bn to nil) explained this development.
 
Net outflows from money market funds reduced from EUR294bn in the first quarter to EUR194bn in the second quarter. Over the past year, net outflows from money market funds have averaged EUR206bn per quarter.  
 
At the end of June 2010, assets of equity funds represented 38 per cent of all investment fund assets worldwide, down from 40 per cent in the first quarter. The asset share of bond funds was 22 per cent and the asset share of balanced/mixed funds was 11 per cent.  Money market fund assets represented 21 per cent of the worldwide total.
 
Taking into account non-Ucits, the market share of Europe in the world market reached 36.3 per cent at end June 2010, and that of the US 44.4 per cent. Excluding non-Ucits, the share of Europe and the US reached 29.9 per cent and 48.8 per cent, respectively.
