The UK Fund Management Activities industry is the second largest in the world and the largest in Europe. The funds under management (FUM) by the industry are expected to reach £5.9 trillion in 2015-16. Industry revenue comes predominantly from management fees, which are normally calculated as a percentage of FUM. Revenue is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 7.8% over the five years through 2015-16, reaching £18.5 billion. Although this suggests that the industry is expected to grow at a robust pace, growth has been boosted by the significant declines registered during the financial crisis.
This industry includes portfolio and fund management activities provided on a fee or contract basis for individuals and businesses. It covers firms operating and managing assets in the United Kingdom for both domestic and overseas clients.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
