The European Fund and Asset Management Association (EFAMA) has today published its latest monthly Investment Fund Industry Fact Sheet, which provides net sales data on UCITS, and AIFs sold in July 2021, at European level and by country of fund domiciliation.


Bernard Delbecque, Senior Director for Economics and Research at EFAMA, commented: “Robust net inflows into long-term UCITS continued as investor confidence was buoyed by positive macro-economic data and an accelerating vaccine roll-out in Europe.”


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


  • Net sales of UCITS and AIFs totalled EUR 138 billion, up from EUR 75 billion in June 2021.
  • UCITS recorded net inflows of EUR 107 billion, up from EUR 60 billion in June 2021.
  • Long-term UCITS (UCITS excluding money market funds) recorded EUR 68 billion of net sales, compared to EUR 72 billion in June 2021.
  • Equity funds recorded net sales of EUR 24 billion, down from 38 billion in June 2021.
  • Bond funds registered net inflows of EUR 22 billion, up from EUR 13 billion in June 2021.
