Fund flows have picked back up in July after a slow June, Morningstar data has revealed. In the past month, UK funds attracted £2.8 billion, significantly higher than the £167 million the month before.

The July flows are the highest since April, which saw net inflows equalling £4 billion. However, the same trends we’ve seen throughout the year carry on; allocation and fixed income are enjoying continued popularity while equity funds struggle. Last month we noted that allocation funds have seen 12 consecutive months of inflows over £1 billion, and this continued in July with £1.2 billion added. In fact, the category has only seen net outflows five times in the past 10 years. GBP moderately adventurous allocation and GBP moderate allocation made up half of all allocation fund flows in July.
