December 15, 2017 | Meaghan Kilroy | Pensions & Investments
Growth rates for alternative investment managers’ fee-earning assets under management have slowed in recent years, but are poised to speed up in 2018, said a new report from Fitch Ratings.
According to the report, released Thursday, fee-earning assets under management growth slowed in 2017 “as fund realizations outpaced capital deployment.”
Across the seven alternative managers examined, fee-earning assets under management totaled $876.1 billion as of Sept. 30, compared to $854.3 billion as of year-end 2016, $815.5 billion in 2015, $763.6 billion in 2014, $727.4 billion in 2013 and $601.6 billion in 2012. The seven examined firms were Apollo Global Management, Ares Management, Blackstone Group, Carlyle Group, Fortress Investment Group, KKR & Co. and Oaktree Capital Group.
Best Due Diligence meeting in the industry. No sales pitches, senior level decision makers, meaningful discussions and the Broker Dealer networking sessions were especially useful. Thanks to Blue Vault for raising the bar!
