Poland’s Asset Under Management Exceed Euro 116 Billion in 1H 2012, Inteliace Research Reports

“The asset management sector in Poland is growing quickly at 14% p.a. despite the crisis. Total assets under management in Poland exceeded Euro 116 billion as of 1H2012. As confidence in the sustainability of the public pension system is eroding, the demand for voluntary pension saving is growing,” says Marcin Mazurek, director of Inteliace Research, at a presentation of Inteliace’s report, “Asset Management and Investment Funds in Poland.”

 

Warszawa, Poland, December, 2012 –(PR.com)– Total assets under management in Poland exceeded Euro 116 billion as of 1H2012. With a 51% share, pension assets constituted the largest part of the AM sector in Poland. Two remaining segments – investment funds and insurance – contributed approximately 25% each. As for key players, Aviva, ING, and PZU group were the top asset managers in terms of AuM; in total, they held almost half the entire AM market.

In recent years, significant changes could be observed in the investment funds business. The number of managers and the number of managed funds has increased significantly due to new entrants increasingly challenging incumbents. New investment vehicles, including individual closed-end funds, specialty products, and new investment strategies, became available to investors. The demand for alternative products benefited smaller, more flexible fund managers who were able to grow their portfolios. In contrast, market leaders, including Pioneer, continued to lose market share. After many years of making significant profits, since 2010, most fund managers have experienced falling profitability in 2011 and 2012.
