Investment fund assets increase seven per cent in Q1


Investment fund assets worldwide increased seven per cent in the first quarter of 2010 to reach EUR 17trn, compared to EUR15.9trn at end 2009, according to the European Fund and Asset Management Association.

Net inflows to long-term funds (all funds excluding money market funds) rose to EUR249bn in the first quarter, from EUR222bn in the previous quarter. 

Equity, bond and balanced funds recorded net inflows of EUR54bn, EUR122bn and EUR37bn, respectively, in the first quarter. 

Over the past year, net flows into long-term funds have averaged EUR246bn per quarter.
Net outflows from money market funds more than doubled in the first quarter of 2010 to EUR294bn, from EUR139bn in outflows in the previous quarter. 

Over the past year, net outflows from money market funds have averaged EUR197bn per quarter.  
Worldwide investment funds had EUR45bn in net outflows in the first quarter, as a result of the sharp rise in the net outflows from money market funds that offset the net inflows into long-term funds. 

Over the past year, net flows into worldwide investment funds have averaged EUR49bn per quarter.
At the end of March 2010, assets of equity funds represented 40 per cent of all investment fund assets worldwide. The asset share of bond funds was 20 per cent and the asset share of balanced/mixed funds was ten 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 35.9 per cent at end March 2010, and that of the US 44.8 per cent. Excluding non-Ucits, the share of Europe and the US reached 30.8 per cent and 48.3 per cent, respectively.
