Fixed Income flows: fixed income funds and ETFs gathered a combined €30.7bn in net new assets (€20.8bn into active and €9.9bn into passive).
Equity flows: equity funds and ETFs have enjoyed €10.4bn of net new assets with €9.3bn into active and €1.1bn in passive funds.
ESG ETFs continue their strong trend and gathered €2.3bn. Smart Beta ETFs gathered €0.6bn.
Chart of the month: The outbreak of a new coronavirus in the central Chinese city of Wuhan triggered a risk-off mood.
This prompted a deceleration in net new assets creation into European domiciled funds and ETFs for both onshore Chinese equities (A shares) and offshore equities (H Shares).
The full extent could not be seen due to market closure in the last week of January for the Lunar year holidays. Global emerging equities continued to gather assets over the month.
