The Buyshares.co.uk data also reviewed the worldwide assets of regulated open-end funds between the first quarter of 2019 and 2020. Funds covered under this category include exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and institutional funds.
During the first quarter of this year, the figure stood at $53.01 trillion, a drop of 10.77% from $59.41 trillion recorded in the last quarter of 2019.
This drop can be attributed to the ongoing health crisis. According to Buyshares.co.uk research report:
"Elsewhere, the slight drop recorded under the worldwide assets of regulated open-end funds in the first three months of this year correlates with a period of a sharp slowdown in economic activity across the globe due to the coronavirus pandemic. The slight plunge can be viewed as maturity in investor behavior with market corrections being perceived as an opportunity rather than a threat."
During the first quarter of last year, the funds stood at $54.09 trillion, which later rose to $54.98 trillion in the second quarter representing a percentage increase of 1.64%. In the third quarter, the figure rose to $57.63 trillion. Between the first quarter of last year and this year, the funds have declined by 1.99%.
