  • Assets under management in French domiciled funds grew by +5.2% and reached close to 1,700 bn EUR (920 bn EUR in AIFs and 763 bn EUR in UCITS), while discretionary mandates of French and foreign clients (including foreign funds managed in France) increased by +4.7%, thus exceeding 1,900 bn EUR.
  • At European level, assets under management in funds amounted to 12,640 bn EUR at the end of 2015, growing by +11.9% over the year. French asset management companies, drawing in particular on an increasingly globalised client base, benefited from this dynamism.

  • Low remunerations on savings accounts and contracts, stemming from an allocation concentrating on fixed income products, weighed heavily on the valuation of the financial assets of French households, whose allocation, largely influenced by taxation, mainly favoured real estate and liquid and guaranteed financial products. New incentives and/or long term savings measures should be put in place, so that the accumulation of individual assets can meet future needs arising from retirement and dependency and contribute more efficiently, together with institutional investment, to the financing of the economy.
