In just 19 working days in February, product developers brought 176 products to market – an average of nine per day. Together these launches raised €15bn. This was further boosted by the range of ACCESS funds (the funds for local government pension schemes in the UK). The five equity funds launched by this group raised €6bn as money was transferred in. Away from ACCESS, there was still plenty of action, with Lyxor proving the most active thanks to its 19 new ETFs.
