For immediate release
21st January 2021 -
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 November 2020*.
Bernard Delbecque, Senior
Director for Economics and Research commented: “Net sales of UCITS equity funds
soared to an unprecedented EUR 59 billion in November 2020,
surpassing the previous record of EUR 48 billion set in
January 2018. This
exceptional outcome was initiated by the confidence and
hope of investors that the arrival of the first COVID-19
vaccines would mark the end of the pandemic and lead to the
return of sustained economic growth.”
