Reassuring macro drivers led to greater demand for bonds and equity funds in June


Net sales of UCITS and AIFs totalled EUR23 billion in June, up from EUR12 billion in May, according to the latest European Fund and Asset Management Association (EFAMA) Investment Fund Industry Fact Sheet.

UCITS, meanwhile, registered net inflows of EUR7 billion, up from EUR1 billion in May, with Long-term UCITS (UCITS excluding money market funds) recording net inflows of EUR19 billion, compared to net outflows of EUR2 billion in May.   
Equity funds registered net outflows of EUR1 billion, compared to net outflows of EUR22 billion in Ma, while net sales of bond funds increased to EUR27 billion, up from EUR23 billion and multi-asset funds recorded net outflows of EUR6 billion, compared to net outflows of EUR2 billion in May. 

UCITS money market funds recorded net outflows of EUR12 billion, compared to net inflows of EUR3 billion in May, with AIFs registering net inflows of EUR17 billion, up from EUR12 billion in May. Total net assets of UCITS and AIFs increased by 2.1% to EUR16,599 billion.
Bernard Delbecque (pictured), Senior Director for Economics and Research, says: “Rising expectations of global monetary policy loosening and easing trade tensions led to a stronger demand for bond funds and a rebound in equity funds net sales in June.”
