The asset management industry has witnessed continued growth over the past decade. Various research
houses suggest the global asset management industry’s size to be at ~$76 trillion in 2015. This represents a
growth of ~$32 trillion from 2005 where the global AUM is estimated to be around $44 trillion. Asset
management has opened up various innovative investment instruments that cater to the requirements of
different segments. Also, asset management firms had focused on providing training to the sales staff to enable
them to increase sales efficiency and also increase customer satisfaction. The growth in disposable income,
increased customer awareness, better-equipped sales force, the firm’s ability to identify and meet customer
demands, and innovative solutions can be considered as the drivers for the asset management industry in the
past decade. However, growth has slowed in the past couple of years and is expected to be in the lower single
digit for the coming few years.
