Record level of inflows for November 2020 ($15.1bn)*
Strongest ever net inflows seen in the market at $15.1bn but this is mainly due to the inclusion of the Magellan Global Equities Fund. Excluding that group we still saw $2.6bn in net inflows so would have been a record either way.

Across inflows – strongest remains multi-equity sector thematic ($8.2bn), followed by Fixed Income ($5.7bn) then Commodities ($1.5bn) and ESG ($1.2bn) – latter doubled since last year and we’re not even completed 2020. Note: ignores Magellan inflows in November.
