Institutional clients look to Corporate Bonds in Q1

RELATED TOPICS​

Money flows through Cofunds’ institutional service show that the Corporate Bond sector was popular across all client types in Q1 this year.

This sector was the top ranking amongst product providers and in addition was in the top three for both execution only and wealth managers.
 
The Newton Global Higher Income fund and the M&G Optimal Income fund were joined by Standard Life Investment’s Global Absolute Return Strategy and M&G’s Strategic Corporate Bond as the only funds to enter the top 20 across all three client types. This is the third consecutive quarter that the Newton Global Higher Income fund, managed by James Harries, has achieved this position.
 
Christopher James (pictured), Director, Institutional Services at Cofunds, says: “Whilst the Corporate Bond sector remains strong across all three client types, the UK All Companies sector and Mixed Investment sectors were also a popular choice amongst investors, with the latter featuring in the top three in two client types.
 
“Wealth manager clients looked to Troy Asset Management’s Trojan fund range in the first quarter of this year. Despite these funds only launching on the platform at the end of 2011, they occupied two of the top four fund spots in the wealth manager space, with the Trojan fund taking pole position.”
