Worldwide investment fund assets increased by 4.6 per cent in US dollar terms, to stand at USD48.3 trillion at end of Q2 2017, according to the European Fund and Asset Management Association’s latest International Statistical Release.

In euros, investment fund assets worldwide decreased 2.0 per cent in the second quarter of 2017, mainly due to the depreciation of the euro.
 
Worldwide net cash inflows decreased to EUR574 billion, compared to EUR611 billion in Q1 2017 and a quarterly average of EUR295 billion in 2016.
 
Long-term funds (all funds excluding money market funds) recorded net sales of EUR460 billion, compared to EUR583 billion in the first quarter of 2017.
 
Equity funds recorded net sales of EUR113 billion, down from EUR164 billion in the previous quarter.
 
Bond funds posted net sales of EUR200 billion, down from EUR254 billion in the first quarter of 2017.
 
Balanced/mixed funds registered net sales of EUR82 billion, up from EUR102 billion in the previous quarter.
 
Money market funds registered net sales of EUR114 billion in Q2 2017, up from EUR28 billion in the previous quarter. Despite outflows in Europe and the Americas, worldwide money market funds experienced the highest inflows since Q4 2014, due to strong sales in Asia.
 
At the end of the second quarter of the year, assets of equity funds represented 41 per cent and bond funds represented 21 per cent of all investment fund assets worldwide. Of the remaining assets, money market funds represented 11 per cent and the asset share of balanced/mixed funds was 18 per cent.
