The European Fund and Asset Management Association (EFAMA) has today published its latest monthly Investment Fund Industry Fact Sheet, which provides net sales data of UCITS and AIFs for January 2021.

“For the third consecutive month, net inflows into UCITS equity funds exceeded EUR 50 billion, a level that had never been reached before November 2020. This exceptional outcome can be traced to the arrival of the first COVID-19 vaccines, which restored investor optimism about future growth prospects.”

Bernard Delbecque, Senior Director for Economics and Research at EFAMA

The main developments in January 2021 can be summarised as follows:

  • Net sales for UCITS and AIFs totalled EUR 83 billion, down from EUR 174 billion in December 2020.
  • UCITS recorded net inflows of EUR 66 billion, compared to EUR 121 billion in December 2020.
  • Long-term UCITS (UCITS excluding money market funds) recorded EUR 83 billion of net sales, compared to EUR 96 billion in December 2020.
  • Equity funds registered net inflows of EUR 55 billion, compared to EUR 59 billion in December 2020
  • Net sales of bond funds decreased to EUR 23 billion, down from EUR 26 billion in December 2020.
