Swiss fund volumes flat in April

RELATED TOPICS​

The volume of assets placed in Swiss investment funds remained static in April at around CHF660bn according to figures released by the Swiss Funds Association (SFA). Net inflows totalled CHF 2.7 billion, almost double the amount recorded in March, despite the difficult market environment and the continuing pressure on bot the US doll and the euro.

The biggest inflows were enjoyed by equity funds (CHF2.0 billion) and bond funds (CHF1.6 billion), above all in the emerging markets segment (global emerging market equities around CHF 1 billion, emerging market bonds just under CHF400 million). Meanwhile, as in previous months, money market funds suffered further outflows, albeit to a much lesser extent (April 2011: – CHF790 million, January 2011: – CHF2.1 billion).

Looking at a breakdown of the fund categories into individual investment strategies, the most money is invested in CHF bond funds (CHF66 billion), global equity funds (CHF44 billion) and Swiss equity funds (CHF41 billion), all of which posted gains, followed by EUR money market funds (CHF31 billion), which suffered a slight drop in volumes. Commodity funds have already secured fifth spot, having gained nearly CHF2 billion in April. In the space of two years, their assets under management have increased from around CHF 10 billion to CHF 30 billion.
