Global assets under management 2002-2018

Assets under management (AUM) include professionally managed assets, which means that managers charge fees for their financial services. In 2018, the value of AUM worldwide amounted to 74.3 trillion U.S. dollars. The value in 2007 was 47.3 trillion U.S. dollars, but that declined nearly 20 percent due to the Financial Crisis in the following year.

Asset management

People hire investment managers to manage their wealth. Private wealth management firms strategically invest the assets of their clients, often using financial instruments not available for individual investors, such as hedge funds.

Investment risks

All investments carry risk, regardless of who manages them. Some asset classes, such as money market instruments or bonds, are deemed to be one the safest investments. They are advisable for the investors who seek stable, but not above average long-term gains. The possible high returns from equities, forex market or alternative investments are tempting, but possible losses are much higher than in case of safer instruments.
