Indicator 8.11 Mutual funds resident in Spain

As mentioned in relation to indicators 8.2, 8.3 and 8.4 in the November Changes, mutual funds are now classified on the basis of their declared objectives. Accordingly, the series for "fixed-income funds" (which includes euro and international short and long-term fixed-income funds, euro and international mixed fixed-income funds and guaranteed funds) and for "equity funds" (which includes euro, national and international equity and mixed equity funds) have been modified. Also a new category of "other funds" (which includes global funds) has been incorporated.
