What’s inside Fund Radar?

The Fund Radar toolkit includes data, reports, analysis and opinion in formats engineered for tacticians, strategists and time-poor senior executives. Below is a selection of our power tools.


First Sight and
Second Sight reports

Bringing together the latest data with cutting-edge analysis and commentary on both domestic and cross-border markets, these reports reveal market signals and trends that asset managers need to inform and guide business planning. First Sight outlines the sales headlines three weeks after month’s end, and is powered by data from Morningstar Direct. Second Sight delivers a much deeper exploration of monthly, quarterly, or annual fund flows and industry developments. The report analyses data from Broadridge FundFile and Fund Buyer Focus, and is published six weeks after month’s end.

Executive snapshot & monthly infographic

We know that time is a precious commodity. That’s why, every month, we create an executive summary and infographic providing immediate insights into the most important activity of the period.

Equity flows take UK sales to record high

There was good news for UK fund managers as the second quarter got off to a cracking start with record monthly sales, according to Broadridge estimates. UK retail investors proved particularly enthusiastic, thanks in part to the beginning of the new ISA season. Institutional investors were also in …

Swiss swim against the tide

After a somewhat stormy March, the clouds cleared over Switzerland's fund industry in April, with net sales rising steadily to about €2.5bn. Equity funds saw the strongest inflows; North American equities took the driving seat here, followed by global and emerging market equities, while the European and Swiss …

Mixed assets and equity forge ahead

In April, the domestic arena recorded its best headline sales month of the year to date, the mixed and equity classes continuing their ‘Dynamic-Duo’ role. In this month’s episode, ‘Batman’-mixed allowed ‘Robin’-equity a little extra sales limelight, but mixed was still very much the senior partner. Thus, local …

Onwards and upwards

France was in the throes of the presidential campaign in the month of April and it showed, in that investors took their hard-earned cash and stashed it in safe havens. Not even traditional money market funds got a look in, but mixed asset, enhanced money market and the …

The great equity expulsion

Austrian investors have remained relatively immune to the attractions of fund investment this year; April brought net outflows for the sixth consecutive month. Equity funds took over from bond funds as the least favoured asset class, suffering the highest withdrawals despite the fact that the Austrian equity market …

A corporate-bond boom

It's been a solid start to the year in Sweden, but the data are especially flattering when contrasted with 2016: already the first four months of long-term flows in 2017 are around twice as high as those during the entire preceding year, even if the pace has slowed …

Positive momentum remains intact

Given what was as stake for the Eurozone and broader European Union, the French elections dominated April’s uneasy sentiment, though Macron's first-round win helped to instil a bit more calm towards the end of the month. Nevertheless, Italy's domestic fund industry ploughed onwards, attracting €4bn in new money. …

Italy, Market Focus

Hope beats uncertainty

April flows into mutual funds remained buoyant, pushing assets in long-only funds to a new all-time high. At just over €2bn, though, the sales tally failed to reach the levels seen in the first quarter despite strengthening flows into fixed income funds and another strong month for mixed …

Fund selector feedback

“I think that the low-interest-rate environment will have an effect in this regard, in that it should lead to the launch of products that suit the requirements of such a scenario. Other factors that could come into play would be the structural reforms in countries – Greece, for example – where such measures have yet to be effected, and the removal of political risk as a threat to market stability over the next few years.”
