Meanwhile, alternatives and hedge funds reported outflows of -€ while property funds suffered outflows of-€0.5bn.

In terms of geographical allocation, Lipper describes the picture as “mixed but positive,” with only 9 of 33 markets surveyed showing outflows. With regard to single fund market flows for long-term funds, Italy (+€5.3bn) and Spain (+€2.7) recorded again the highest level of inflows, while France (-€0.9bn), Portugal (-€0.1bn) and Greece (-€0.05bn) reported net outflows.

Per company, Blackrock reported the highest net sales of +€4bn, followed by DeAWM with +€3.2bn and JP Morgan with +€3bn.
