0.3% of mutual funds generated 100% of net flows for Q1

Monday, May 23, 2011
Opalesque Industry Update - In Q1/2011, according to a new research report by Strategic Insight, 0.3% of mutual funds around the world gathered over 100% of net flows for the quarter, totaling $210 billion in net cash contributions. This confirms a trend towards “blockbuster products and an accelerating winner-takes-all phenomenon in the global asset management industry since the financial crisis”, according to Daniel Enskat, Head of Global Consulting for Strategic Insight.

“In 2010, global net cash flows to long-term funds reached $850 billion. Of that total, a remarkable 95% of flows went to only 0.5% of products in the market, as asset holders around the world are reducing the number of managers they work with. In Q1/2011, the number was even higher: 0.3% of all products globally, i.e. 200 long-term funds, took in over 100% of flows, totaling $210 billion in net cash flows through March 2011,” added Enskat.

“Global financial institutions and distributors since the financial crisis in a back-to-basics environment are selecting fewer strategic partners and even fewer products. This mostly benefits large independent fund houses and, increasingly, selected investment boutiques.”

The report, ‘David and Goliath in the Global Asset Management Industry’, features case studies from the fastest growing boutiques around the world, e.g. Carmignac or Bluebay in Europe, Value Partners or Huashang in Asia, or Double Line or Pacific Heights in the US.

“Remarkably, the success stories are across asset classes, investment styles and categories”, added Enskat. “In addition to clear fund positioning/investment process and competitive performance – which a number of fund managers can demonstrate –, blockbuster firms in almost all cases have highly visible fund managers, outstanding marketing and proactive communication.”
