Asset TV & Thomson Reuters Lipper: The GFC and Fund Flows Ten Years On

by Jake Moeller.

Recorded on: August 16, 2017

In August of 2007, BNP Paribas suspended three of its investment funds, an incident which at the time, only made news in a few local trade publications.  A subsequent run on Northern Rock and a £10 billion injection into money markets by the Bank of England in September 2007 signalled for many, the true reality of the Global Financial Crisis (GFC), the effects of which continue to this day.

In this short Asset TV interview, Jake Moeller, Head of Lipper UK and Ireland Research at Thomson Reuters reflects on the event through the lens of historical fund flows and considers what, if any, conclusions we can reach in today’s investment environment.
