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 managers come primarily from the managers' responses to Pensions & Investments' year-end survey, which was published May 30. Watson Wyatt Worldwide, Reigate, England, conducts a separate survey to gather the data on non-U.S. managers. The data from the two surveys are then combined, with affiliated managers aggregated under the parent company.
Firms that did not respond to the P&I or Wyatt Watson surveys were subject to omission. Contact Anthony Scuderi, directory manager, at 212-210-0140 if you have any questions about the content of this report.
