The role of asset management
Asset managers play a crucial role in the lives of European citizens, communities and businesses.
The core mission of an asset manager is to invest European citizens’ capital and savings into productive economic activity, allowing companies to grow by providing access to new sources of funding for their business. This, in turn, enables companies to provide jobs for European citizens and better serve their customers and employees.
The proceeds from financing these companies and projects are then returned to European savers and pensioners, in the form of capital appreciation or dividends. This allows them to meet their financial goals, such as paying for their children’s education or funding retirement.
Through smart asset allocation, asset managers direct investments to innovative enterprises and projects that can accelerate the recovery of the European economy and the transition to a climate-neutral society.
