Global equities are benefiting from an increasingly positive outlook by investors, according to the latest BoA Merrill Lynch Survey of Fund Managers.

Just over half of fund managers, 55%, say they're overweight in global equities, the largest proportion since July 2007.

The additional assets appear to have come from bonds-54% of fund managers are now underweight in bonds, from 47% in December.
