Growth in global asset management stalls in 2001

GLOBAL- Growth in the global asset management industry virtually ground to a halt last year according to figures from Cerulli Associate’s 2001 report.

Responses to the 2001 global asset management survey suggest overall growth for the year was 0.2% or less than $100bn (e114bn). This figure compares with a growth of 4.1% in 2000 and 14% in 1999.

The report covers an estimated 77% of the $34trn market.

Cerulli says respondents to the survey now manage $431bn for multimanager products and fund of funds demonstrating a continued growth in the class, particularly in Europe.

It goes on to claim that it is products offered by the likes of Frank Russell Company, SEI and National Australia Bank’s MLC which are increasingly popular.

According to replies to the survey, 27% of assets under management are indexed or passively managed. Cerulli says an extrapolated figure puts the passive market at around $9trn.

On the retail side, respondents said a fifth of their assets are sourced from either financial advisors or some form of platform-based distribution.

“This could indicate the beginning of a significant jump in usage of non-traditional distribution systems by the world’s asset managers,” says the report.
