Italy leads as fund sales rise

Italy’s fund industry saw the highest net inflows in February at €5.6 billion, according to Lipper figures.

Italian bank, Intesa SanPaolo, saw the bulk of this, with €3.4 billion worth of net flows.

Germany and Switzerland saw positive flows too, at €4.8 billion and €3.1 billion, respectively.

Intesa SanPaolo came second to BlackRock, which saw net sales of €6.8 billion, while Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management saw €3.2 billion of net sales.

Overall, the European funds industry saw €65 billion of net inflows in February, which compares to €25.7 billion in January.

The UK saw the largest outflows, at €1.8 billion, followed by Netherlands and Denmark.

Lipper says eight out of the 33 markets saw net outflows.

Bond funds – with estimated net inflows of €24.5 billion – were the best selling asset class overall for the month.

Provisional figures for Luxembourg- and Ireland-domiciled funds suggest bond funds, with estimated net inflows of around €18.6 billion, will be the best selling products for March 2015.
