The research highlights some of the major trends in the mutual funds’ industry in 2020. According to the research report:

«Notably, the highlighted companies were impacted to some extent by the pandemic. The coronavirus pandemic hit the mutual funds industry with declining market outflows. However, most companies in the space have reversed the losing trend over the second quarter as central banks and governments around the globe started rolling out stimulus programs and economic relief packages to cushion the economic drawdowns.»

The data also compared the asset held by the top ten mutual funds companies to the United States Gross Domestic Product (GDP). As of December 2020, the US GDP is at $21.25 trillion. Therefore, the funds’ cumulative assets under management are about 69.83% more than the US GDP.

The Buy Shares research also commented on the US economy amid the coronavirus pandemic. According to the report:

«Despite the US economy shrinking in the first and second quarter, it made significant gains in the third quarter. The growth was fueled by the pandemic relief package. The economic growth was threatened by the raging new coronavirus cases and dwindling fiscal stimulus.»
