European Fund Market Review (2013) now available here
March 2013 in Brief
Long-term fund sales (excluding money market funds) in Europe totalled €30.4bn in March, above the €20bn mark for the eighth consecutive month.
Money market funds suffered outflows (-€4.2bn), as investors withdrew from US$ and €-denominated funds, thus reducing industry-wide fund sales to €26.2bn when this activity is included.
Sales of bond funds were up (reaching €17.3bn), while equity fund sales were down by nearly €4bn to €5.6bn, and those for mixed asset products fell slightly (to €7.1bn).
Absolute return funds reached the €200bn milestone in assets under management. Sales for these products this month hit €6.3bn.
JPMorgan improved on last month’s achievement and was the best-selling group with inflows of €3.2bn, ahead of PIMCO (€2.8bn) and Franklin Templeton (€2.6bn). PIMCO was the top of the tree over the first quarter with net sales of €9bn.
