  • Russian sanctions impact asset fund flows
    managers typically manage alternative investment funds and are often registered in off shore territories The recent Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive AIFMD actually aims at attracting some of those funds to Europe by providing better access to the European fund market provided some risk guidelines are followed Most active managers don t replicate a benchmark however some commit themselves to achieving absolute investment return targets For instance they promise investors a return of 5 percent whatever the market situation Nonetheless most assets are managed by fund managers who follow a passive investment style The Figure 1 indicates the composition of the European asset management industry Approximately 71 percent are standard UCITS Funds which means that they are more or less passive investors that replicate indices created by financial service providers Removing Russia The indices that are used as benchmarks by passive investors are created by different service providers such as Morgan Stanley and Standard Poor s The Dow Jones is perhaps the most well recognized Morgan Stanley offers one of the major indices under the title Morgan Stanley Capital Indices MSCI There exist different kinds of indices for different kinds of markets For instance MSCI All Countries is a weighted average of different indices in the world the latter reflecting local stock market valuations MSCI All Countries is a natural benchmark for an internationally diversified investor The emerging market index however is a weighted average of stock market valuations in emerging markets This index would thus be ideal for an investor investing in emerging markets As already alluded to recently MSCI launched new versions of its composite MSCI All Country and emerging markets indices which exclude Russia This is because sanctions against Russia have changed some investors sentiment there is growing demand among passive investors for indices that exclude Russia given the potential negative impact of EU and U S sanctions on the Russian market Sanctions have had an impact on how investors view Russian investment Performance results show that the MSCI EM Eastern Europe with the Russian shares excluded has a better performance than does the index which includes Russian shares The impact of the decision to create more ex Russia indices is potentially huge especially considering that the value of assets under passive management is overwhelming Before the creation of these new indices excluding Russia managers that had as a benchmark an index where Russia was included were forced to invest in Russian securities They now have the freedom to avoid the Russian market In addition as the number of ex Russia indices started increasing in July this should have been met with a net outflow of cash out of the Russian stock market putting downward pressure on the Ruble The reinforcing impact of ETFs Currently other service providers such as Standard and Poor s have not yet opted for the creation of ex Russia indices If other market players were to move in that direction that might put huge negative pressure on Russian stock market valuations Moreover
