The asset figures, and resulting ranking and tables, for the P&I/Watson Wyatt 500 list of the world's largest money managers are derived from several sources.
The figures for the U.S.-based firms come primarily from the firms' responses to Pensions & Investments' year-end survey, which was published May 14. Watson Wyatt Worldwide, Reigate, England, sends out a separate survey to gather the data on non-U.S. managers. The data from the two surveys are then combined, with affiliated firms aggregated under the parent company.
Firms that did not respond to the P&I or Watson Wyatt surveys are subject to omission. Contact Anthony C. Scuderi at (212) 210-0140 if you have any questions about the content of this report.
