Laura Suter, personal finance analyst at AJ Bell, comments:

“No one region dominated in June, with advisers spreading their purchases between funds focused on the US, Europe, Asia-Pacific and global stock markets.

“Bond funds made a comeback this month, accounting for three funds on the list, as advisers continue to hunt for income in a low-rate environment. Advisers may also be seeking out some protection as they get nervous that the current bull market is getting long in the tooth. 

“Advisers continue to shun UK funds, amid concerns about Brexit, with just two UK-focused funds appearing in the top 10. This continues the theme we’ve seen since Brexit, with £8bn of investor money flowing out of UK funds in the past two years.”
