Net sales of Ucits and alternative investment funds (AIFs) saw a boost in April, totalling €43bn - up €6bn from the previous month, said €opean Fund and Asset Management Association (EFAMA) .

According to latest Investment Fund Industry Fact Sheet by EFAMA, overall inflows into Ucits reached €27bn (up from €13bn in March) despite net outflows of €12.7bn from equity funds due to investors' concerns over the global economic outlook.

Bernard Delbecque, Senior Director for Economics and Research said: "Despite encouraging economic data and stock market gains, equity UCITS funds continued to suffer net outflows in April, which suggests that investors remained concerned about the global economic outlook."

Long-term UCITS (UCITS excluding money market funds) recorded net inflows of €14bn, down from €16bn in March.

Equity funds registered net outflows of €13bn, compared to net outflows of €23bn in March.

Net sales of bond funds dropped to €25bn, down from €43bn in March.
