Barclays Stockbrokers sees record inflows in January

Barclays saw record inflows into funds through its execution-only platform in January after a 320% year-on-year increase in client numbers.

The Fidelity UK Smaller Companies fund was the top seller, followed by Aberdeen Emerging Markets and Newton Asian Income .

The rise in fund investment equated to a 39% increase on December’s inflows and a 237% year-on-year increase in the total value size of client purchases.

This reflected an apparent bullishness that was evident in the funds being selected with no sterling bond or specialist funds making it into the top 10 sellers. Both sectors had been present in each month throughout 2010.

Alastair Thaw, head of investor product at Barclays Stockbrokers, said: ‘During January, we saw clients make the highest ever level of investments into funds. This is the third month in a row now that this has happened and is an interesting indicator of increasing demand for funds from our clients.’

The top 10 also featured First State Global Emerging Market Leaders in fourth place and then BlackRock European Dynamic , Cazenove UK Smaller Companies , Neptune UK Mid Cap , Unicorn UK Income , Liontrust Special Situations and Cazenove UK Opportunities .
