El pasado 5 de febrero de 2004 entró en vigor de la ley 35/2003, de 4 de noviembre, reguladora de las instituciones de inversión colectiva (IIC) que introduce algunas novedades de interés en relación con estas entidades. Por otra parte, en los últimos años las IIC (especialmente los fondos de inversión) han experimentado primero un fuerte crecimiento y, más recientemente, un cierto retroceso debido a varios factores: el comportamiento de los tipos de interés; la evolución de los mercados de valores, especialmente la bolsa (tanto sus cotizaciones como su volatilidad); los cambios del tratamiento fiscal de las inversiones; etc. Este artículo estudia las principales novedades que supone la nueva norma reguladora de las IIC; igualmente, intenta analizar si su política de inversiones ha estado influida por los fenómenos comentados y si estos hechos han originado variaciones en los mercados de valores. El período contemplado comprende los años 1992 a 2003. The fifth of February 2004 saw the coming into effect of the 35/2003 4 November law, which regulates Collective Investment Institutions (CII), introducing certain interesting innovations concerning these entities. On the other hand, in recent years CII (especially investment funds) had first undergone a strong growth and have lately suffered a slight recession for various reasons: the behaviour of interest rates; evolution of stock markets, especially the stock exchange (not only in values but also in unpredictability); variations in taxation on investment etc. This article looks at the main novelties brought about by the new regulation governing CII; it also attempts to analyse whether their investment policy has been influenced by the developments mentioned, and if these in turn have caused changes to take place on stock markets. The period contemplated spans 1992 to 2003.
