These inflows occurred in a positive market environment in which investor sentiment was still impacted by the aftermath of the presidential election in the U.S. and the increasing dynamics of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The positive performance of the underlying markets led in combination with the estimated net inflows to increasing assets under management (from €992.6 bn as of December 31, 2021, to €1,008.9 bn at the end of January).

The increase of €16.3 bn for January was driven by the estimated net sales (+€15.2 bn), while the performance of the underlying markets contributed €1.1 bn to the increase of the assets under management.

It was not surprising equity funds (€690.1 bn) held the majority of assets, followed by bond funds (€272.6 bn), commodities products (€36.6 bn), alternative UCITS products (€5.1 bn), money market funds (€2.3 bn), mixed-assets funds (€1.9 bn), and “other” funds (€0.2 bn).
