At the request of its respective manager, the regulator removed four funds from Degroof Petercam Asset Management and two private capital funds.
They are as follows:
- DPAM INVEST B Equities Euroland
- DPAM INVEST B Real Estate Europe Sustainable
- DPAM L Bonds Unversalis Unconstrained
- DPAM L Patrimonial Fund

For being overly concentrated in its investments, the CCR also cut the Aberdeen Standard’s American Focused Equity, Jupiter Asian Income and Moneda Latin America Equities funds.
Lastly, the CCR cut an infrastructure product from Global Infrastructure Partners and a private capital fund from Gold Gate Capital for not having their approval requests renewed, the regulator said.
