Investor Confidence returning?

  • By Alex Sullivan

Klare Baldwin, Head of Marketing at FundsNetwork, comments on the latest best selling funds:

 

“The recent bounce of equity markets was not enough to encourage investors back into riskier assets in July and income remained a popular choice. Investors also showed caution by continuing to spread their risk with the Mixed Investment 20-60% shares sector at the top of the leader board once again. August trends could be the one to watch.  If the progress made by equity markets in June and July continues, we may see some signs of investor confidence returning. “
