As of end March 2021, NAV of Croatian UCITS funds stood at HRK 19.3bn (+23.4% YoY)

Since asset managers play a significant role in the Croatian capital market, it is particularly interesting to see how they have been performing since the beginning of 2021. As visible from the graph below, NAV of all funds has witnessed a steady increase for 12th consecutive month, and as of end March stood at HRK 19.3bn (+2.1% MoM or +23.4% YoY). Meanwhile NAV of Croatian mutual funds increased by as much as 6% YTD (Q1 2021).

As a reminder, in March of 2020, UCITS funds observed a sharp decrease in their NAV of 32.2% or HRK 7.42bn. We note that most of the mentioned decrease could be attributed to the withdrawals from the funds, while a smaller portion reflects the change in value of assets in which the funds invest in.
