Global managed assets hit USD74trn in 2014

RELATED TOPICS​

The global value of professionally managed assets grew to USD74 trillion in 2014  – the third consecutive annual record – and the industry’s profits rose to match their historic peak of USD102 billion. 

That’s according to Boston Consulting Group’s 13th annual report on the asset management industry, which also reveals that operating margins remained steady, sitting just below the record level achieved before the financial crisis.

Growth driven by net flows rebounded in Europe in 2014, catching up with that in the Americas, making it one of the fastest-growing regions for net flows after being the weakest following the crisis

European net flows in 2014 reached 1.7 per cent of prior-year AuM, compared with 1.3 per cent in 2013.

Growth was driven in particular by very high net inflows in Spain and Italy, but there was a weak performance in the UK.

There is a growing interest in Asia-Pacific underlying assets, although the focus remains on North America and Europe.

This year, managers based in Asia-Pacific increased their average AuM slightly faster on average than those in the Americas and Europe—12 per cent for Asia-Pacific compared with 10 per cent for the Americas and 9 per cent for Europe.

The report is base on a study of 135 leading asset managers – representing USD39 trillion, or 53 per cent, of global Assets Under Management
