This month has seen the launch of two new active funds, and a flurry of new ETF options for investors. Competition in the ETF market is clearly increasing, with one major provider cutting fees this month on a number of its core ETF holdings.

The investment trust industry has also had a busy June; one of the sector’s more successful trusts in recent years has raised additional funds to boost its gearing, while two smaller company trusts have merged. There have also been a number of high profile manager moves, with departures from both F&C and L&G funds.
