Assets invested in Swiss funds rose to CHF623bn in November

Tuesday, December 20, 2011
Opalesque Industry Update - In November 2011, the volume of assets placed in the investment funds covered by the statistics stood at around CHF 623 billion, an increase of about CHF 4.5 billion month-on-month. Following the outflows in the previous two months, funds attracted new money totaling nearly CHF 2 billion in November.

As of the end of November 2011, the total volume of assets in the investment funds covered by the statistics compiled by Swiss Fund Data AG and Lipper stood at CHF 623.1 billion, with funds for institutional investors accounting for some CHF 225.8 billion of this figure. This translates into an increase in volume of around CHF 4.6 billion.

“November was generally a very quiet month, with only very modest movements. It was pleasing to see the moderate inflows of assets and the erstwhile recovery on the currency front. As regards cash, there was a shift into money market funds. Although the renewed flight into money market funds confirms that these products are appreciated as safe havens in uncertain times, it also unfortunately indicates that uncertainty among investors has tended to increase again slightly,” explained Dr. Matthäus Den Otter, CEO of the Swiss Funds Association SFA. There was a positive showing in terms of net inflows (up CHF 1.7 billion) and market performance (up CHF 2.9 billion). By comparison with the major indices: Dow Jones +0.76%, SP 500 -0.51%, and SMI -1.38%. The EUR also gained just under 1% vs the CHF, compared with 2.8% in the case of the USD.

It was above all money market funds and funds in the “other funds” category that attracted new money (CHF 2.0 billion and CHF 0.4 billion respectively. There were notable outflows in the case of bond funds (CHF 0.8 billion) and asset allocation funds (CHF 0.2 billion). There were no changes among the fund categories, with Bond CHF, Equity Global, Equity Switzerland, Commodities, Money Market EUR remaining the top 5. Full press release: Source
