UK-Focused Equity Funds Have Record Outflows

UK Launches Asset Management Review

During April, UK-focused equity funds saw record outflows. Investors pulled £836m from the category, just beating the previous record set in January this year.

Key highlights from this month’s FFI:

  • UK equities funds saw record outflows of £836m. Over the last seven years combined, no net new capital has flowed into UK-focused funds
  • Two thirds of UK focused funds saw outflows
  • UK Smaller-company and mid-cap funds bore disproportionate share of the outflows
  • European, North American, technology and specialist regional funds also saw outflows
  • Global fund inflows partially offset record selling in March and were dominated by ESG funds
  • Inflows to fixed income funds were focused on low-risk categories – short-dated and inflation-linked bonds
