Active fund managers around the globe are looking favourably on technology, financial services, and software companies, according to a new report from UBS.

The Wall Street firm analysed data from FactSet on the top holdings from institutional investors around the world.

UBS calculated the active weight of each company by adding up all of the holdings in dollar value from active fund managers. It then took weight of each stock in that portfolio and compared it to the relevant equity benchmark.
