Net sales of equities and bond funds turned negative in May


Net sales of UCITS and AIFs registered net outflows of EUR1 billion in May, compared to net inflows of EUR43 billion in April, according to the latest Investment Funds Industry Fact Sheet from the European Fund and Asset Management Association (EFAMA).

Net sales of UCITS recorded net outflows of EUR9 billion, compared to net inflows of EUR45 billion in April, while net sales of long-term UCITS (UCITS excluding money market funds) recorded net outflows of EUR3 billion, compared to net inflows of EUR36 billion in April. 
Net sales of equity funds saw net outflows of EUR3 billion, down from net inflows of EUR16 billion in April, while net sales of bond funds saw net outflows of EUR8 billion, compared to net inflows of EUR10 billion in April, and net sales of multi-asset funds totalled EUR9 billion, down from EUR10 billion in April. 
UCITS money market funds registered net outflows of EUR6 billion, compared to net inflows of EUR9 billion recorded in April.
Net sales of AIFs recorded net inflows of EUR8 billion, compared to net outflows of EUR3 billion in April.  
Total net assets of UCITS and AIFs registered EUR16,004 billion at end May, compared to EUR15,818 billion at end April. 
Bernard Delbecque (pictured), Director of Economics and Research, says: “Rising trade-related tensions, increased political risks and gradually normalising inflation caused a spike in investor risk aversion in May, resulting in net outflows from equity and bond funds. “
