Asset Management - Was ist das genau?

What do we do in Asset Management?

Fund companies or asset managers invest money on behalf of investors in well-regulated pools of money called mutual funds, investment funds or Unit Trusts. Thousands of funds exist that have different return and risk characteristics. The goal of most funds is to have a high return while keeping investment risk at a minimum.

Funds may invest in stocks, bonds, money markets, or real estate for example. Traditional investment funds and ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds) are strongly regulated products that are available to private and institutional investors (i.e. insurance firms, pension plans). You may have heard of hedge funds or private equity funds too. These are primarily marketed to institutional investors.

Funds and ETFs are ideal to help investors reach their financial goals. Goals may be to complement your retirement income, build your own home or to finance your children’s education. There is a fund for every need! Funds are sold at banks, direct banks or via financial advisors. They may also be part of life insurance products or a digital offerings like a robo-advisor.
