With a stock market correction of 8% during the quarter, it was no surprise that platform assets shrank by 0.7% to £377bn — robust flows and a strong interest in all things pensions cushioned platforms from the worst. Fundscape’s Q3 Platform Report showed that gross flows were slightly lower than the last quarter at £24bn, but net flows rose to a new high of £13bn. On a YTD basis, gross sales were £72bn v £60bn in 2014, while net sales were £35bn v £30bn the previous year.
