Please take note of the following:
The increase in the number of funds in 2023 is not solely due to the creation of new funds, but also due to the scraping mechanism itself. The country or IP address from which the scraping is conducted is critical. For instance, some funds that have limited marketing distribution rights to Germany may not appear in the search results if the country of scraping is Switzerland.
Additionally, it is important to note that the funds that have disappeared from the 2023 list were not necessarily liquidated or merged. It is possible that some of these funds lost their marketing distribution rights in the country from which the scraping was conducted.
