These inflows occurred in a positive but somewhat volatile market environment in which investor sentiment was still impacted by the dynamics of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting actions taken by central banks and governments in Europe and other parts of the world.

The positive performance of the underlying markets led in combination with the estimated net inflows to increasing assets under management (from €1,177.8 bn as of June 30, 2021, to €1,197.5 bn at the end of July).

The increase of €19.7 bn for July was driven by the estimated net sales (+€11.6 bn), while the performance of the underlying markets contributed +€8.1 bn to the increase of assets under management. With regard to assets under management, it was not surprising equity funds (€860.9 bn) held the majority of assets, followed by bond funds (€295.3 bn), commodities products (€29.6 bn), alternative UCITS products (€6.6 bn), mixed-assets funds (€2.6 bn), money market funds (€2.4 bn), and “other” funds (€0.1 bn).
