Our solutions

Stock Flows and Allocations

Stock Flows provide estimates of the flows into a given stock by multiplying the monthly flow into a fund by the last available holdings data. This calculation is repeated for all funds tracked by EPFR and summed into an aggregated figure for over 20,000 individual stocks.

Stock Allocations data, on the other hand, measures the average allocation to a given stock within a specific fund group.
