Global assets under management
Global asset allocation or Global assets under management consists of pension funds, insurance companies and mutual funds. Other funds under management include private wealth and alternative assets such as hedge funds and private equity. Institutional clients generate the majority of funds.
Assets of the global fund management industry increased 1% in 2011 to reach a record $79.8 trillion. Growth in recent years has largely been due to rising net flow of investment and strong performance of equity markets. Part of the reason for the increase, in dollar terms, has also been the decline in the value of the dollar against a number of currencies.
