Assets under management – additional information

Assets under management (AUM) is a financial term used to describe the total value of assets managed by an investment company on behalf of their clients. The investment company can be a bank, mutual fund, hedge fund, exchange traded fund, wealth management company or other financial services company investing clients’ money in selected financial instruments.

The value of assets under management is dependent on many factors. As it depicts the amount of clients’ funds that have been entrusted to the investment company, the fluctuations of AUM value can indicate significant inflows or outflows of customer capital. The value of AUM also depends on the rate of return of the portfolio constituents. If the value of the financial instruments creating the portfolio falls, the value of AUM will also decrease.

The value of assets under management is one of the most important criteria used to compare investment companies. It is a measure of success showing which company is most popular among investors and/or offers the highest value of capital appreciation in the prevailing conditions of the financial and economic markets.
