Managed funds have overall had another good month of positive returns on the back of rising markets.

The latest figures from Fund Source show that gains are being made across all sectors.

Key points:

  • Fifth straight month of positive returns for managed funds
  • International equity funds now up on average 15.83% for the six month period
