According to me..

As the two events are meant to occur simultaneously in the present

the use of present perfect continous tense in E

"investors have been putting their money"

does not match the present continous

"they are abandoning traditional low-interest investment "

While, more and more, investors :- the use of comma looks absurd in this context.

The sentence dosen't look to be as a whole. (A) looks to be the best choice.
