Pensions & Investments is calling on money managers to participate in its annual survey of the largest managers.
The data gathered for calendar year 2020 will shine a light on how various strategies and asset classes came out of a roller-coaster year dominated by the coronavirus pandemic, market plummet and subsequent strong rebound.
Worldwide institutional assets under management grew 14.4% in 2019, and despite a cratering of markets in the first quarter of 2020, that level of growth could be matched again as accommodative fiscal and monetary policies in response to the pandemic kept investment gains flowing.
Responses to P&I's annual money manager survey are due March 19. All firms managing U.S. institutional, tax-exempt assets are eligible. Pure alternative managers are encouraged to participate to further expand our datasets for the benefit of our readers. The data, and various stories by P&I staff based on the data, will be released as part of a special report in the May 31 issue. All of the data, as well as past years, will be in P&I's Research Center at pionline.com/researchcenter.
To request a survey or obtain further information, please contact Anthony Scuderi at [email protected] or 212-210-0140, or visit pionline.com/section/surveys.
Survey data will also be used to help populate the autumn megamanagers special report of the 500 largest global managers, completed in conjunction with Willis Towers Watson PLC's Thinking Ahead Institute.
This year's survey has a few new questions. P&I is asking what percentage of the total workforce, senior management and investment staff are women or minorities.
Other new questions concern how much AUM is managed globally in cryptocurrency and assets managed for registered investment advisers.
