IMAP's 6 Monthly FUM Census for Managed Accounts 
 
Since 2015 IMAP has collected and reported summary data on the Funds under Management (FUM) for participating managed accounts providers, so that this can be used to present and highlight the importance and role of the managed accounts sector more effectively.

 

Growth in Managed Accounts FUM

The Managed Accounts industry has seen explosive growth driven by regulation as advisers and dealer groups have adopted a fee-for-service model and improved their business models to achieve greater efficiency and "value add" .

The growth has been facilitated by developments in technology by the Managed Account platform providers.

Fund managers, too, have finally realised the potential of the market with a wide array investment options made available via Managed Account platforms.
