Korkorahastojen arvo kasvanut vuonna 201911.11.2019 13:00:00 EETTiedote

Suomalaisten sijoitusrahastojen rahasto-osuuskanta kasvoi kesäkuusta 2016 heinäkuuhun 2018 tasaisesti, 99 mrd. eurosta 123 mrd. euroon. Elokuussa 2018 arvon kasvussa tapahtui käänne, ja rahasto-osuuskanta laski 11 mrd. eurolla vuoden 2018 loppuun mennessä. Sijoitusrahastojen rahastopääomakanta oli 112 mrd. euroa joulukuun 2018 lopussa. Sijoittajien tekemät nettolunastukset pienensivät rahastopääomakantaa 3,8 mrd. euroa, ja sen lisäksi pääasiassa osakemarkkinoiden heikon kehityksen myötä rahastoihin sijoitetun pääoman arvo laski 7 mrd. euroa. Pelkästään osakerahastojen arvo laski 5,5 mrd. euroa vuoden 2018 lopun aikana. Suurimmat lunastukset (2,7 mrd. euroa) tehtiin korkorahastoista.
