Situation globale des organismes de placement collectif à la fin du mois de décembre 2021 (uniquement en anglais)

Communiqué de presse 22/02

I. Overall situation

As at 31 December 2021, the total net assets of undertakings for collective investment, comprising UCIs subject to the 2010 Law, specialised investment funds and SICARs, amounted to EUR 5,859.485 billion compared to EUR 5,749.910 billion as at 30 November 2021, i.e. an increase of 1.91% over one month. Over the last twelve months, the volume of net assets rose by 17.81%.

The Luxembourg UCI industry thus registered a positive variation amounting to EUR 109.575 billion in December. This increase represents the sum of positive net capital investments of EUR 32.116 billion (+0.56%) and of the positive development of financial markets amounting to EUR 77.459 billion (+1.35%).

The development of undertakings for collective investment is as follows:

The number of undertakings for collective investment (UCIs) taken into consideration totalled 3,492, against 3,508 the previous month. A total of 2,291 entities adopted an umbrella structure representing 13,244 sub-funds. Adding the 1,201 entities with a traditional UCI structure to that figure, a total of 14,445 fund units were active in the financial centre.

As regards the impact of financial markets on the main categories of undertakings for collective investment and the net capital investment in these UCIs, the following can be said for the month of December.

Concerning developed markets, the European equity UCI category rose amid expectations of strong corporate earnings and a resilient economic recovery, despite concerns about the new Omicron variant and persistent supply chain shortages. The US equity UCI category realised a positive performance as well in December, on the back of good economic data and robust corporate earnings. The Japanese equity UCI category finished the month in positive territory, aided by the partial extension of the Covid-19 support financing program of the Bank of Japan, the anticipated substantial fiscal stimulus package as well as the depreciation of the JPY.

As for emerging countries, the Asian equity UCI category achieved modest gains in overall as the losses in some Asian equity markets such as China, experiencing a market sell-off amid concerns that the emergence of the new Omicron variant could have an adverse impact on global recovery, were offset by Asian equities that were able to rise (e.g. Taiwan, India and Malaysia). The Eastern European equity UCI category moved sideways in December, driven on one hand by a decline of Russian equity markets amid the sharp volatility of oil prices and tensions between the United States and Russia in light of the situation in Ukraine and on the other hand by the positive development of equity markets in Poland and Czech Republic. The Latin American equity UCI category realised a positive performance, under the impulse mainly of strong gains in the Brazilian and Mexican equity markets.

In December, the equity UCI categories registered an overall positive net capital investment, mainly driven by inflows in the Global market equity UCI category.

Concerning the EUR denominated bond UCI category, yields globally raised (i.e. bond prices fell) as the European Central Bank announced in December the end of its Pandemic Emergency Purchase Program (PEPP) program by March 2022, while maintaining a backstop by preserving the possibility of flexible reinvestments of maturing debt instruments acquired via the PEPP programme. Investment grade corporate bonds spreads tightened after reports that the new Omicron variant appeared less lethal. Overall, the EUR denominated bond UCI category realised a negative performance in December.

As for the USD denominated bond UCI category, the US Federal Reserve (Fed) decided to accelerate its tapering measures in light of the high inflation in the United States and the strengthening labour market. Against this backdrop, the yields of USD denominated bonds rose, but the appreciation of the USD against the EUR shifted the USD denominated bond UCI category in positive territory.

The Emerging Market (“EM”) bond UCI category rose as risk sentiment improved in December, despite the US Fed’s announcement to accelerate tapering and interest rate hikes in 2022 and the tightening of monetary policy by many EM Central Banks in reaction to inflationary pressures.

In December, fixed income UCI categories registered an overall positive net capital investment.
