Supplementary notes

* Estimated

The report is primarily based on data provided by EFAMA national member associations through a questionnaire. Eighteen national member associations provided data on the value of the assets managed in their countries at end 2016: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Switzerland, Spain, Turkey and the UK. According to our estimation, these countries account for 86% of the assets under management (AuM) in Europe. Additional internal and external data have been used to estimate the AuM in the other European countries. The value of total AuM at end 2017 has been estimated on the basis of the growth in investment fund assets in 2017.

The source provides the additional information: "Asset management is the professional management and trading of securities and other types of assets to achieve a specific investment goal for the benefit of clients."
