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 July 2020*.

Bernard Delbecque, Senior Director for Economics and Research commented: "Solid net inflows into long-term UCITS indicate overall investors confidence about the investment outlook in July, despite the risks posed by the COVID-19 crisis. At the same time, the sustained net inflows into money market funds confirm that a certain degree of caution prevailed among investors."


The main developments in July 2020 can be summarised as follows:


  • Continued net sales of UCITS and AIFs totalling EUR 124 billion, up from EUR 108 billion in June.
  • UCITS led this growth with recorded net inflows of EUR 109 billion, compared to EUR 100 billion in June 2020.
    • Long-term UCITS (UCITS excluding money market funds) recorded net inflows of EUR 50 billion, slightly down from EUR 52 billion in June 2020.
      • Net sales of equity funds amounted to EUR 13 billion, down from EUR 17 billion in June 2020.
      • Bond funds recorded net inflows of EUR 22 billion, compared to EUR 30 billion in June 2020.
      • Multi-asset funds recorded net inflows of EUR 13 billion, up from EUR 3 billion in June 2020.
    • UCITS money market funds recorded net inflows of EUR 59 billion, compared to EUR 48 billion in June 2020.
  • AIFs recorded net inflows of EUR 15 billion, up from EUR 7 billion in June 2020.
