Segregated accounts at Ir£24.54bn accounted for the largest single tranche of pensions assets and these registered a small decline of 0.1% in the year. The strongest growing pensions area were unit-linked assets which rose by 6.8% to Ir£12.94bn. Assets in pensions endowment policies increased to Ir£5.59bn, a rise of 4%. Unit trusts pension investments shrank by 4.2% to Ir£5.15bn.

The total assets managed by IAIM members for Irish residents amounted Ir£75bn at year-end. These grew by just 1.5% in 2000. The overall flat results are attributed by the IAIM to the poor market conditions last year.

Private clients assets increased by 5% to £1.38bn, the bulk of their investments - amounting to Ir£1.14bn - being in unit trusts. These rose by 5.3%, while the Ir£248m in private client segregated accounts saw a 3.7% increase.

The assets managed in Ireland for non-Irish residents by IAIM members rose by 8% last year to £119bn, bringing the total assets managed by members to Ir£194bn. The bulk of the investments at year-end were in equities (59%); Irish equities accounted for 18%, and euro ex-Ireland for 17%, with non-euro at 25% of total assets.

Fixed income made up 29%, comprising 9% Irish, 17% other euro and 3% outside the Euro-zone. While 6% of assets were in cash, this was split equally between Irish and other euro, while 5% in property was all in Irish assets.
