Invested Assets

Fund investments on the rise

Institutional investors continue to invest more extensively in funds. Over the last 10 years, volumes in ''Spezialfonds'' (funds for institutional investors only) have increased by over 153% to a figure exceeding EUR 1,619 billion. Also, some EUR 353 billion are assets outside investment funds. In addition, institutional investors may also purchase retail funds.

Growth trend

Last year's new business also underscores the continuing growth trend. Institutional investors entrusted investment companies with a further EUR 95 billion in ''Spezialfonds''.
