These inflows occurred in a positive market environment in which investor sentiment was still impacted by the aftermath of the presidential election in the U.S. and the increasing dynamics of the COVID-19 pandemic. The positive performance of the underlying markets led in combination with the estimated net inflows to increasing assets under management (from EUR992.6 billion as of 31 December, 2021, to EUR1,008.9 billion at the end of January).”
