UK Pooled Property Funds See 1st Net Inflow For 12 Months In 2Q-Study


UK Pooled Property Funds See 1st Net Inflow For 12 Months In 2Q-Study

LONDON -(Dow Jones)- Unlisted pooled property funds, or PPFs, in the U.K. posted the first net inflow in a year in the second quarter, demonstrating investor confidence due to improving economic conditions, the Association of Real Estate Funds reported in a study.

"Not only were net sales positive for the first time in a year, but actual redemptions have also started to see a significant slowdown over the past couple of quarters," said AREF Chief Executive Rachel McIsaac.

"This could be an indication that the direct property market cycle might be in the process of stabilizing."

In its Investment Quarterly study, AREF said PPFs had an overall net inflow of GBP52.4 million in the second quarter, compared with an outflow of GBP39.2 million a year earlier.

The study showed that in total, GBP320.4 million of new money went into PPFs, with redemptions totaling GBP268 million. Like in the first quarter, redemptions in the second quarter were significantly lower than in previous quarters.

AREF examines data provided by 67 unlisted member funds with a net asset value of some GBP21.1 billion.
