  At the beginning of this year, it is common for new funds to achieve tens of billions or even hundreds of billions of dollars in subscription scale, but recent statistics have found that new funds of tens of billions of dollars are rare, and the market has not seen a scale of tens of billions for two months.

  In the context of market style switching and the continued volatility of the stock market, the newly issued funds in 2021 are showing three new characteristics: First, in product design, the number of new funds with 10 billion yuan is gradually reduced. During the year, 19 new funds with 10 billion yuan Most of the establishment time was in the first quarter of this year. Since June 9th, no tens of billions of funds have been launched. Second, the development of equity funds continues to accelerate, and hybrid funds are still the main product of fund companies. The scale of newly established hybrid funds raised this year It has reached 1.3 trillion yuan; third, the overall scale of new funds is about to exceed 2 trillion yuan, and the investment direction of new funds is more inclined to large technology sectors such as new energy.

  Hybrid fund raising scale

  Up to 1.3 trillion yuan

  According to statistics from WinD Information, as of August 13 this year, a total of 1081 funds have been established in the public offering market, raising a total of 1.97 trillion yuan, which is about to exceed 2 trillion yuan. The number of newly established funds and the scale of fundraising have increased by 25% year-on-year. ,9%.

  Among them, 574 newly established hybrid funds raised 1.3 trillion yuan; 301 stock funds raised 267.706 billion yuan; and 174 bond funds raised 358.39 billion yuan.

In addition, other types of funds such as QDII, REITs funds, and alternative investment funds have also established new funds, while currency funds have not been established.

  From the perspective of the average share of funds raised, since the beginning of this year, the average raised scale of all publicly offered new funds has been 1.82 billion yuan, a drop of 260 million yuan from the same period last year.

  Ten billion yuan new fund

  "Disappeared" for more than two months

  In the context of the decline in the average fundraising scale, the number of new funds with a scale of over 10 billion newly established during the year is also decreasing.

Since the establishment of Penghua Yongyi's 3-month fixed-opening fund on June 9, the entire market has not established a tens of billions of public offering fund products for more than 2 months.

Overall calculations show that 19 "Big Mac" funds with a value of 10 billion yuan have been established since the beginning of this year, a decrease of 4 from the same period last year.

  A public funder told reporters: "The reason for the decrease in new funds in the tens of billions of dollars is related to the changes in fund company product design. At present, large fund companies that have the ability to raise tens of billions of funds are very cautious in setting the product scale. It is not easy to issue new funds that are too large, which has increased the publicity of high-quality old funds to a certain extent."

  "For small and medium-sized fund companies, star fund managers who have grown up in the past few years will not have a large scale of issuing new products." The above-mentioned industry insiders told reporters.

  From the perspective of fund companies, the management companies of the aforementioned 19 tens of billions of funds are still dominated by large public offering funds. Among them, China Guangfa Fund established four tens of billions of funds in January, which ranks among the forefront of the industry.
