Klimek Advisors Global Asset Managers Index

Source: Morningstar, EuroSwitch. As of 13 June 2018. This performance is related to past years,
is not a reliable indicator of future performance and is not constant over time.


Each quarter we publish the “Klimek Advisors Global Asset Managers Index“. This index is a tool for us to analyse the current situation of the asset management industry and to illustrate the view of international investors on the industry. For this reason, the index publication is by no means a buy or sell recommendation.

The index displays the performance of more than 50 listed asset management companies in EUR. For inclusion in the index, it is a mandatory requirement that a minimum of 75% of the overall revenue of a company is derived from asset management fees. Banks and insurance companies that have major asset management entities will, therefore, normally not be included in the index. The index represents all continents.

Listed companies are transparent as they publish quarterly, semi-annual and annual results. The analysis of data of individual listed asset management companies enables us to consolidate relevant information and to make generalising statements. We use this insight into the industry as management consultants to our clients. Depending on the mandate, we divide the universe of constituents of the “Klimek Advisors Global Asset Managers Index“ into groups of similar companies against which we then benchmark our clients.
