Commenting on the release, Toby Potter Chair of IMAP said “This new total shows just how significant managed accounts in their various forms have become. They now amount to the equivalent of nearly 7% of the Platforms and Wraps total FUA of around $600bn.”   

 

Thirty five companies participated in the latest Managed Accounts FUM Census ranging in size from the largest (the major platforms and banks) to MDA providers who offer their services just to their own clients. “It’s a sign of a very dynamic market that such a varied array of organisations can offer quite unique services and business models” said Potter.

 

The increase in the measured FUM for managed accounts can be attributed to three primary sources

  • market movement in existing portfolios;

  • additional participants compared to the June 2016 study and growth in FUM for the providers who participated in both June and December 2016;

  • new participants contributed $2.35bn in FUM

 

Market movement in the S&P ASX 200 accounted for $2.5bn of the growth with $2.5bn being new growth.

 

“There remain a number of managed account providers who have not yet provided their FUM data. Consequently we expect that the actual total will be greater than the number this survey has revealed” said Potter. “This simply reinforces the increasing significance of this sector in the provision of personal advice.”
