This was higher than the total net sales of €457 billion for the whole of 2016 and puts 2017 on course to outperform the record-breaking year of 2015 when sales amounted to €763 billion.
The report also showed that the combined net sales of Ucits and alternative investment funds reached €246 billion in the third quarter of 2017, down from €249 billion in the second quarter.
Ucits funds registered net sales of €190 billion in the third quarter of 2017, up from €175 billion in the second quarter.
