What's in the bulletin?

  • The reporting period for this release covers Quarter 2 (Apr to Jun) 2016 and therefore only includes data for a short period after the EU referendum.
  • Net investment of £6 billion was reported by insurance companies, pension funds and trusts in Quarter 2 2016. The 5-year quarterly average for this series is net investment of £8 billion.
  • The net investment of £13 billion in UK government sterling securities in Quarter 2 2016 was the largest since records began in 1986. This was mainly caused by net investment by self-administered pensions funds (£16 billion).
