Since the beginning of the year 2016, clients have invested more than CZK 9.38bn into mutual funds through Česká spořitelna (ČS). The assets in funds distributed by ČS have increased by a total of more than CZK 2.17bn. In the year 2016, nearly 5,000 new investors appeared. ČIANEWS has been told this by Česká spořitelna investment specialist Jaroslav Kropáček, who added that continuing demand of clients for mutual funds is expected. According to his words, the most sought-after will probably be the more conservative solutions in the form of mixed mutual funds or ČS nemovitostní fond.
