The World’s 500 Largest Asset Managers – Year End 2009


The P&I/Towers Watson global 500 ranking is prepared using joint research by Pensions & Investments and Towers Watson.

Highlights from this year’s report include:

Assets managed by the world’s largest 500 fund managers rose by 16% in 2009 to US$62 trillion at the end of the year. This is in contrast to a 23% loss the year before.

Although the percentage rise in total assets in 2009 is the second largest since the research began in 1996, asset levels are still below 2006 levels.

During the past five years only half of the fastest growing firms have done so in a primarily organic way, with the other half doing so by merger or acquisition.

By number, bank-owned asset managers continue to dominate the top 20, although the number of independent managers in the group grew.
