Autif, the UK trade body for funds, is in the early stages of reviewing whether to include FSA-recognised offshore funds in performance tables alongside onshore unit trusts and Oeics.
Autif has asked for feedback from management groups, the European association of fund trade bodies FEFSI and the FSA.
Anne McMeehan, director of communications at Autif, said there was a split between groups on the issue and no consistency across European trade bodies on the way the issue is dealt with.
Some groups favoured having offshore funds listed alongside onshore, but unresolved issues such as differences in disclosure need to be addressed.
Philip John Flint Wood, Standard & Poor's European managing director for fund services, said: 'We get some requests for UK retail fund services data and are reviewing if we should use such data in our products.'
