Asset Management Companies 

Individual investors usually lack the expertise and resources to consistently produce strong investment returns over time. Therefore, many investors rely on asset management companies to invest capital on their behalf.
Asset management companies are usually a group of investment professionals with broad market expertise. With a large amount of pooled capital, they are able to utilize diversification and complex investment strategies to generate returns for investors.
AMCs generally charge a fee to their clients that is equal to a percentage of total assets under management (AUM). AUM is simply the total amount of capital provided by investors.
An asset management fund may charge a 2% fee on AUM. Consider as an example an asset manager who oversees a $100 million fund. The fees for one year or another time period will be $2 million ($100 million x 2.0%).
These group level figures include funds of funds that mainly invest in external funds (those run by other groups) or overseas funds. However, figures exclude funds investing in internal funds (i.e. those run by the same group) to avoid double counting of fund assets at group level.

This explains why the sum of the group level figures for funds under management is different to the totals shown in other reports (except in the case of ISA reports).

These figures include UK domiciled funds only.
