Macro outlook

Overall macro outlook among European fund selectors is at a historic low ever since we began collecting this data eight years ago. Less than a fifth of respondents are optimistic. The only silver lining is perhaps the fact that the number of pessimists has tailed off and more investors are neutral in Q2 ’19.

Cash / money market funds

Strongly correlating with current macro views, in Q2 ’19, there are still more fund selectors looking to add to their cash positions. Note how the red line, showing the number looking to decrease cash allocations, is closing in on the green line. Perhaps this is a sign of a bit more calm returning to the minds of wholesale investors. Looking at net flows for all Europe-domiciled funds, money market funds attracted a net inflow of over €100bn from Oct ’18 – Apr ’19.
