Asset management is a scalable business that can work very well when it is managed carefully and when market conditions allow growth. Asset managers often want to scale their business by expanding into new markets or by targeting new groups.

With more than 21,000 funds, managed by more than 3,100 fund companies with an average of 4 bn. EUR Assets under Management (AuM) between then, the European market requires a consolidation. The challenging year 2011 saw outflows of more than 260 bn. EUR assets under management.
