Global situation of undertakings for collective investment at the end of July 2016

Press release 16/38

I. Overall situation

As at 31 July 2016, total net assets of undertakings for collective investment and specialised investment funds amounted to EUR 3,565.756 billion compared to EUR 3,461.904 billion as at 30 June 2016, i.e. a 3.00% increase over one month. Over the last twelve months, the volume of net assets decreased by 0.48%.

The Luxembourg UCI industry thus registered a positive variation amounting to EUR 103.852 billion in July. This increase represents the balance of positive net issues of EUR 33.743 billion (0.97%) and of the positive development in the financial markets amounting to EUR 70.109 billion (2.03%).

The number of undertakings for collective investment (UCIs) and specialised investment funds (SIFs) taken into consideration totalled 3,888 as against 3,887 in the previous month. 2,578 entities have adopted an umbrella structure, which represents 12,932 sub-funds. When adding the 1,310 entities with a traditional structure to that figure, a total of 14,242 fund units are active in the financial centre.

As regards the impact of financial markets on Luxembourg UCIs and SIFs (hereafter “UCIs”) on the one hand and the net capital investment in these UCIs on the other hand, the following can be said about July 2016.

All the categories of equity UCIs registered price increases in the month under review, despite the persistent uncertainty about Great Britain leaving the European Union.

As regards developed countries, European and US equity UCIs realised a positive performance in a context, notably, of sound economic data on both sides of the Atlantic.

The announcement of a fiscal stimulus package sustained Japanese equity UCIs while economic indicators remain mixed.

As regards emerging countries, the Asian equity UCI category developed positively notably in relation to mostly positive economic indicators for the region. Sustained by encouraging economic forecasts for Russia, Eastern European equity UCIs saw a positive development, as the attempted coup d’état in Turkey did not impact the equity
markets of the other Eastern European countries. In a context of reforms in many countries of the region and a general upward trend in commodity prices, the Latin American UCI category improved.

In July, equity UCI categories registered an overall negative net capital investment.

Overall, bond yields fell on both sides of the Atlantic in the period under review.
Under the effect of persistently weak inflation in Europe, the result of the British referendum and the expansive monetary policy of the European Central Bank (ECB), the yields of EUR-denominated government and corporate bonds fell, entailing an increase of EUR-denominated bond UCIs.

The USD-denominated bond UCIs, for their part, profited from the wait-and-see attitude of the Fed as regards the rise of key interest rates which resulted in a fall in US bond yields.

The persisting interest of investors in emerging market bonds, despite uncertainties at a global level, resulted in a decrease in risk premiums and, as a consequence,  allowed emerging bond UCIs to close the month in positive territory.

In July, the category of fixed-income UCIs registered an overall positive net capital investment.
