Equity funds saw net redemptions of €2.2bn. Some €1.4bn of equity fund redemptiosn were due to outflows from Finnish funds into foreign funds. Asset allocation funds saw redemptions of €26m.

Positive net flows of €350m went to bond funds, with a further €416m going into short term fixed income funds. Alternative funds experienced positive net flows of €13m.

By market share, Nordea Funds remains the biggest provider, with some 39.3% of the market. OP Fund Management Company has 20.8%, and Danske Invest has 8.8% to round out the top three.

Evli, 7.6%, FIM, 5.5% and Aktia, 4.3% make up the subsequent providers ranked by market share.
