Rise in quarterly fund's assets

In the first quarter of 2012, the fund's assets of the Dutch investment institutes rose by 6.2 percent, to EUR 506.9 billion.

This was announced by De Nederlandsche Bank N.V. The rise can mainly be attributed to the price return on investments and less so to the net investment.

Institutional investors

The net investment in the first quarter amounted to EUR 3.6 billion, accounted for mainly by institutional investors. In the first quarter of 2012, share funds (EUR -2.3 billion), bond funds (EUR -1.3 billion) and mixed funds (EUR -0.2 billion) reported a net reduction. Property funds too saw capital being withdrawn, albeit limited in scope (EUR -48 million).

Only the categories other funds (EUR 6.9 billion) and hedge funds (EUR 0.6 billion) showed positive net investments.

MSCI World

In the first quarter of 2012, investment institutions achieved a total return of 5.1. Equity investments achieved a price return of 8.2 percent per quarter. In that same period, the MSCI World Index in Euros rose 8.1 percent. A price increase of 2.1 percent was realised in investments in government bonds, which are mainly accounted for by bonds from countries in the Euro area. This is less than the iBoxx Euro Sovereign all maturities index, which rose by 2.9 percent per quarter as a result of the fall in the capital market interest rate, in both France in Italy. The Dutch hedge funds achieved a return of 0.2 percent. The number of Dutch investment institutions fell from 1478 at year-end 2011 to 1472.
