McKinsey: Assets in alternatives reach record high of $7.2 trillion

McKinsey: Assets in alternatives reach record high of $7.2 trillion | asset management | Scoop.it

Alternatives are continuing to see net inflows, with assets hitting a global record high of $7.2 trillion in 2013, said a report released Wednesday by McKinsey & Co.

 

The alternatives category — which McKinsey defines as hedge funds, funds of funds, private equity, real estate, commodities and infrastructure — has now doubled in size since 2005, with global AUM growing at an annualized pace of 10.7%, twice the growth rate of traditional investments.

 

Net inflows into alternatives as a percentage of total assets were 6% in 2013, compared to the 1% to 2% rate for non-alternatives.

 

“The demand for alternatives has never been higher,” said Ju-Hon Kwek, an associate principal in McKinsey's wealth and asset management practice and co-author of the report, in a telephone interview. “The demand is being driven by both cyclical and structural factors. There's been a fundamental change in the way people are thinking about asset allocation that's expanded the aperture.”

***

The report asserts that net inflows in the global alternatives market are expected to grow at an average annual pace of 5% over the next five years, well above the 1% to 2% expected annual pace for the industry as a whole. By 2020, alternatives could make up about 15% of global industry assets and produce up to 40% of industry revenues. At the end of 2013, alternatives made up 12% of global industry assets and 33% of industry revenues.
