Are Investors Dumping Trump?

A year on from Donald Trump's election as US president, we take a look at whether investors are sticking with US equities or selling up

Donald Trump has struggled getting his reforms through, but tax cuts are back on the agenda.

Investors have piled cash into US equity funds and exchange traded funds (ETFs) to the tune of £8.5 billion since Donald Trump was elected as president a year ago, according to data from Morningstar Direct.

The inflows are impressive, despite a lack of meaningful action from the political regime so far and a growing concern over whether Trump’s business-friendly pre-election promises will materialise. But the prevalence of tracker funds high up the best-buy list suggests investors are keen to catch the end of the rampant bull market that has climbed steadily since 2009.
