The corporate bond sector has continued to be the most popular UK-domi- ciled net retail sector, according to the latest figures from the Investment Management Association.

The sector took £684.3m of net business in April, down from £935.1m in the previous month. The biggest outflows were in the global emerging markets sector at £243.1m.

Of the total £2.1bn net retail sales, £1bn was invested in bond funds while equity funds took in £579m. Institu- tional holdings of unit trusts and Oeics saw an outflow of £69m.
