CAMRADATA announces top asset class searches for investors in April 2017

RELATED TOPICS​

In April, the top three most searched investment asset classes were global equities, US equity and global diversified growth funds, according to CANRADATA, a provider of data and analysis for institutional investors.

 
There was continued interest on CAMRADATA Live in global corporate fixed income too, and this asset class moved up to seventh place.
 
There was also increased interest in Japanese equities which moved into the top ten, taking eighth place – up from 11th last month.
 
In the 12 months to 30 April 2017, nearly 21,000 searches were carried out in CAMRADATA Live. Over 40 new products were also added to CAMRADATA Live which focused on several different strategies, including emerging markets equity, European equity, Japanese equity, European fixed income, European property and UK property.
 
The top searched asset managers were BlackRock in the GBP50+ billion AuM, Kames Capital in the GBP20-GBP50 billion AuM and Unigestion SA in the GBP5-GBP20 billion AuM. This was consistent with March.
 
However, there was a change in the GBP0-GBP5 billion AuM bucket with Momentum Global Investment Management taking top position, ahead of Third Avenue Management, the most searched for asset manager in March.
 
New faces also appeared in the top five most searched for asset managers in their AuM buckets. These were Comgest and Jupiter Asset Management Limited (GBP20-GBP50 billion), SKAGEN Funds and AGF Investments (GBP5-20 billion) and RAM Active Investment at (GBP0-GBP5 billion).
 
Sean Thompson (pictured), managing director, CAMRADATA, says: “Our latest snapshot of investment searches puts Global Equity back in the top position after coming in second in March. While the top three searches have been the same over the past few months, this month suggests investors are also looking at different strategies with 41 new products added.
 
“Japanese equities moved into the top 10 in April which highlights growing interest in this asset class. This is in line with our last quarterly investment report which showed Japanese Equities was the standout performer in Q4 2016, with the FTSE World Japan Equity Index returning 15.2 per cent in yen terms.
 
“Our monthly snapshots are helping our clients keep on top of the latest investment trends, providing them with key insights and data ahead of our more detailed quarterly investment reports.”
