Assets Under Management

Assets under management (AUM) is the entire market price of the investments that real estate developers, fund, and investment management firms handle on behalf of their investor clients. AUM may also denote the number of asset classes ranging from single properties to an entire portfolio that is managed by any particular real estate entity. AUM swings every day, indicating the flow of money in and out of a specific fund and the price shown of the assets.

 

Funds having higher AUM tend to be traded more easily. A fund’s management charges and expenditures are often evaluated as a percentage of AUM.

The clients having a higher volume of AUM are required to pay lower fees. Investors often consider a higher volume of AUM and increased returns to be a criterion of a good asset manager’s quality.
