The negative performance of the underlying markets led to decreasing assets under management (from €877.1 bn as of August 31, 2020, to €870.9 bn at the end of September) despite net inflows.

This means the decrease of €6.2 bn for September was driven by the performance of the underlying markets (-€12.1 bn), while net sales contributed inflows of €5.9 bn to assets under management.

It was not surprising equity funds (€576.0 bn) held the majority of assets, followed by bond funds (€258.9 bn), commodities products (€25.1 bn), alternative UCITS products (€5.9 bn), money market funds (€3.1 bn), mixed-assets funds (€1.8 bn), and “other” funds (€0.2 bn).
