Q1 2019 Traditional Asset Flows Report

Fixed income managers excluding cash management strategies reported net institutional inflows of +$22.6 bn.

Despite the infusion of fresh assets, the four quarter total beginning Q2 2018 remained in firmly negative territory measuring -$104.9 bn, largely due to widespread redemptions in Q4 2018. Allocations to U.S. (+$9.5 bn) and global managers (+$20.7 bn) represented the bulk of Q1 2019 inflows to fixed income strategies.

Report Highlights:

  • Long-only asset managers reported Q1 2019 institutional assets under management of $26.8 tn to eVestment
  • Allocations were pervasive across passive strategies in 1Q
  • Australia equity managers experienced net institutional redemptions of -$1.7 billion during the most recent quarter, erasing the +$1.6 bilion in inflows gained in Q4 2018
