The UK all maturities bonds segment on TrackInsight lost 1,73% yesterday (Thursday, June 18th) after a few days of growth that pushed the year-to-date cumulative performance in positive territory, at 2,21% before yesterday’ slide. Yields on UK government bonds had jumped after the Bank of England announced a slowdown in its quantitative-easing program. The Central Bank will reduce the weekly buy-back amount from £14 Bn to £6,9 Bn but remains on alert and it could increase QE again if needed. Long-term yields have been particularly affected by this slowdown, widening the gap with shorter maturities rates. In 2020, the 10 ETFs of this segment have attracted almost $ 600 million of net inflows, bringing the total amount of assets under management to $ 7,1 Bn.
