Eight funds ISA investors are backing on Hargreaves' platform

Investors are increasingly looking overseas for returns when it comes to choosing funds

Investors are increasingly looking overseas for returns when it comes to choosing funds, suggests Hargreaves Lansdown's list of most popular strategies with ISA investors on its platform in February.

Hargreaves senior analyst Laith Khalaf said: ‘Global funds are the flavour of the day with ISA investors, as they look overseas for a home for their long term savings, as Brexit negotiations continue to rattle on here in the UK.

'Lindsell Train and Threadneedle still manage to swim against the tide and land their UK equity funds in the top ten however.'

Interestingly, the Woodford Equity Income fund does not feature in the top funds. Last week we exposed the astonishing extent to which Hargreaves is backing the fund.  

Here are the eight active funds that sold the most, ranked alphabetically along with AUM and performance data.
