Q4 2019 hedge fund letters, conferences and more


Bernard Delbecque, Senior Director for Economics and Research commented: January was another strong month for UCITS and AIFs, after the bounce back already experienced in the fourth quarter of last year. With the benefit of hindsight, the year 2020 will be marked by the coronavirus crisis and it will take time before net sales of UCITS reach again the high level recorded in January.” 

The main developments in January 2020 are as follows:

  • Net sales of UCITS and AIFs totalled EUR 137 billion, up from EUR 70 billion in December 2019.
