The latest results highlight the mixed fortunes of the sector: a notable number of funds saw net outflows, while eight GOEFs reported net positive inflows, with the remaining staying closed to redemptions and liquidating. Despite the tail off in sentiment in December, the GOEF sector reported strong overall results for 2012, with €2.9 billion in net inflows. This is significantly up on the €1.2 billion reported in 2011, and the highest level since 2009 when there were net inflows of €3.2 billion. (source: CBRE Global Research and Consulting)
