Fund supermarket Cofunds lists top selling funds for May

7th June 2013

Fund supermarket Cofunds has issued its list of top sellers for May. These will tend to be funds advised upon by independent financial advisers. Cofunds says the biggest sector continued to be the mixed investment 20-60 per cent shares with four of the top twenty in the sector.

Michelle Woodburn, Head of Fund Group Relations at Cofunds, commented: “The Standard Life Investments Global Absolute Return Strategy fund took the top spot in May as absolute return remained a key theme as advisers continue to seek outperformance in all market conditions. In addition, despite another volatile month for UK equities, with good gains followed by a correction towards the end of the month, UK sectors proved popular with advisers and their clients, with four funds listed in the top 20. It’s also notable that Mixed Investment 20-60% Shares continued its reign as the most favourable sector.”
