Eurozone multi-asset favoured in Q3

Eurozone multi-asset funds have recorded by far the strongest inflows, according to ECB data for the Eurozone fund industry in the third quarter of 2015.

Multi-asset funds registered €66bn in inflows throughout the third quarter of 2015, compared to bond funds reporting €7bn in inflows, while equity funds only attracted  €2bn over the same period. This translates into an annual growth rate of 4.5% for bond funds, 1.7% for equity and 16.3% into multi-asset funds.

Throughout the same period, the outstanding amount of shares and units issued by investment funds other than money market funds was €8,933bn, which is €411 billion lower than in the second quarter of 2015.

Investment funds other than money market funds decreased their holdings of debt securities issued by the rest of the world and decreased equity issued by the rest of the world.
