The Institute of Financial Services Zug IFZ, part of Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, and the Asset Management Association Switzerland have produced the third edition of the Swiss Asset Management Study providing a comprehensive overview on asset management in Switzerland.
It shows the following:
- The sector has assets under management totalling CHF 2’519 billion which corresponds to a year-on-year growth of 16.5 percent.
- Net new asset inflows in 2019 are estimated to be almost CHF 100 billion.
- Switzerland continues to offer good conditions for the asset management industry and asset management has established itself as an important pillar of the Swiss financial sector.
Relative to last year’s sentiment survey, Swiss-based asset managers no longer see regulation as the most pressing challenge while specialization and sustainable investments are still evaluated as the most promising opportunities.
