Turbulent markets lead European investors to draw assets out of long-term funds in January

With equity markets in turmoil and falling yields cutting into the expected returns of fixed-income investments, European investors made significant withdrawals from long-term open-end funds in January. Fixed-income funds saw the largest outflows: EUR 15.8 billion exited the asset class during the month with six fixed-income categories suffering outflows of more than EUR 1 billion apiece. European long-term open-end funds saw EUR 22.6 billion in outflows, while money market funds garnered small inflows of EUR 666 million during the month, according to Morningstar estimates.
