UK Stocks ETFs have started seeing some positive flows once again, after the sector has been strongly out of favour with investors for months due to concerns over the Brexit and its implications for the domestic market.
ETFs investing in UK equities are down 2.9% over the last month after the fall of Sterling currency, lower-than-expected inflation data and the Bank of England’s hesitation to raise interest rates one year after Brexit.

Institutional investors are allocating to ETFs more than ever driven by market volatility, concerns about liquidity in the bond space and a desire to take advantage of the latest bouts of outperformance, according to a study conducted by Greenwich Associates.
