Assets in portfolio management 

The Financial Supervisory Authority (FIN-FSA) releases quarterly statistical data on assets in portfolio management. The data are based on reports submitted by banks, investment firms and fund management companies to FIN-FSA on the basis of regulations and guidelines 1/2013. The entities subject to reporting are Finnish banks, investment firms and fund management companies that provide portfolio management services as well as Finnish branches of foreign credit institutions and investment firms.

The table below gives the breakdown of assets in portfolio management into discretionary and advisory portfolio management. Under discretionary portfolio management, the decision-making power regarding investments lies with the bank, investment firm or fund management company. Under advisory portfolio management, the client makes the final investment decisions.

The table also shows the share of resident mutual funds' assets in the total assets in portfolio management. In such cases the management company managing the funds has transferred fund assets for investment by other companies.
