Bond sectors sweep the board in Q4

RELATED TOPICS​

Money flows through Cofunds’ institutional service show that bonds were strong across all client types in Q4 last year. Bond funds were especially popular with execution only clients, accounting for the top three funds, and amongst wealth managers, three of the five highest-selling funds were in this sector.

Product providers (accounting for the underlying collectives within their pension, bond and SIPP wrappers) and execution-only clients both favoured Corporate Bond over the course of the last quarter, with M&G Strategic Corporate Bond fund achieving pole position across both of these clients. Wealth managers however looked towards European Collective Investment Vehicles.
 
Christopher James (pictured), Director, Institutional Services at Cofunds, says: “Bond sectors were universally popular in Q4 and this trend was particularly prevalent with execution only clients.
 
“Newton Global Higher Income again featured in the top 20 funds for all three client types. While this was the only fund to achieve this in Q3, last quarter M&G Optimal Income also appeared in this top percentage across execution only clients, wealth managers and protection providers.”
