FMA Report on Asset Management for the 1st quarter of 2023: Slight increase in assets managed following a significant fall in 2022, stabilisation at a high level

Release Date: |

As of the end of the first quarter of 2023, Austrian investment funds managed assets of around € 203.6 billion[1]. The amount represents an increase by € 3.4 billion or 1.7% compared with the preceding quarter. In year-on-year comparison however, it decreased by € 16.4 bn or 7.45%. The increase in net asset value during the 1st quarter of 2023 was the result of € 200 million in aggregated net inflows of fund, although the largest proportion (€ 3.2 bn) was due to changes in market values. Broken down by investment strategy as of 31.03.2023, € 93.9 billion (+0.7% compared to the preceding quarter) was managed in mixed funds, € 54.8 billion (+3.9%) in bond funds, € 38.1 billion (+4.5%) in equity funds, € 11.0 billion (-3.0%) in real estate funds, € 4.4 billion (-13.0%) in short-term bond funds, € 1.1 billion (only annual data available) in private equity funds as well as € 0.4 billion (-1.0%) in other funds. In the long-term the Austrian funds market has posted net inflows of funds, especially in the case of mixed funds, as well as real estate funds and equity funds, while pension funds have witnessed outflows. A total volume of € 84.4 billion (+3.4% compared to the preceding quarter) are already managed with a reference to sustainability in accordance with the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR), which is the strongest growing market segment. These are the findings of the FMA’s Report on Asset Management for Q1 2023, which was published today.
