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.

The sun shines on

January’s fair market weather continued into February. Among major world indices, the SMI saw some of the strongest returns, with year-to-date gains of over 11%. Total net inflows for the month neared €3bn, slightly outpacing January’s figures. In line with Europe’s general trend, bonds bagged all the glory, …

February brings no reprieve

Despite two months of improving stock markets, there was no respite for the French fund industry. The only asset classes to attract net flows were bond, money market and the newly-popular real estate sector. Total sales were €7bn, but long-term flows were in the red to the tune …

A country undivided

It has been a gloomy start to the year for the UK fund industry. In February there were net redemptions from funds for the ninth consecutive month according to both Broadridge and the Investment Association’s (IA) figures – although both showed withdrawals somewhat down on January. All asset …

Make bonds great again

The local Italian industry mirrored the more generalised recovery seen in the wake of dovish signals from the US Fed. Fixed income products attracted the bulk of inflows, with net sales of over €1bn, followed by equity and other asset classes, which recorded net subscriptions of €212m and …

Leaving everything for bonds

Booming stock markets did not stop Swedish investors from abandoning equity funds in February – nor other assets types for that matter: all investment classes bar bond funds ended the month in the red. In particular, investors deserted core equity sectors such as US, Swedish and European funds …

Caution rules

Following easing in January, the pace of overall net domestic outflows slowed to a near halt in February. Continued growth generally in the local index and other markets buoyed investors’ mood, but equities still stood out as the month’s largest sales loser. Conversely, the persistence of recently much-improved …

Sentiment remains cautiously optimistic

Fund flows were positive, with property funds as the bestselling category for a successive month. Investors shifted monies out of liquidity funds to reinvest in equities and mixed assets. Sales in bonds turned negative when investors withdrew substantial funds from short-term products. Investors continued to invest carefully. To …

Heading in the right direction

The good news for Austrian fund managers in February was a third consecutive month of declines in total redemptions. This was mainly due to an increase in net sales of mixed asset funds which rose to their highest monthly level for a year. These sales more than offset …

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.”
