This month has seen a number wave of new fund launches, with a number aimed at those looking for greater diversification in their portfolio. These include ones invested in infrastructure and blockchain technology.

There have also been several fund managers launching UK-based versions of offshore funds. These funds have built up decent performance figures, and the managers no doubt hope the OEIC structure should widen the appeal to UK investors.

It has also been a busy month in the investment trust industry, with a number of mandates changing hands. One investment trust board has initiated this process, in a bid to improve performance. But – more unusually – an investment manager has also served notice after a dispute about fees, after a period of quite stellar performance.
