- Why Calastone?
Australian investors ploughed almost three times as much cash into managed equity funds in 2021 as they did in 2020, according to our latest Fund Flow Index. They also more than doubled their subscriptions for fixed income funds. Across all asset classes, inflows soared 162% to A$35.7bn, up from A$13.6bn in each of the previous two years. Record inflows in Q3 meant the quarter accounted for over two-fifths of the annual total. Nevertheless, inflows in the fourth quarter were also strong – at A$8.0bn, Q4 was the second-best quarter for Australian fund flows on Calastone’s record.
