Here's a list of the top 10 largest asset management companies we will do business with:

1. BlackRock

AUM: $6.84 trillion
BlackRock is not just the world’s largest asset manager, but one of the world’s largest financial institutions. The company was founded in 1988 and went public in 1999. The firm has been influential in advancing the growth of exchange-traded funds (ETFs), through its iShares products. iShares now comprise more than a quarter of BlackRock’s assets under management.

2. The Vanguard Group

AUM: $6.2 trillion
Vanguard has become synonymous with the strategy of passive investing, in which money is placed in mutual funds designed to mirror the activity of specific indexes or the broader stock market. Vanguard boasts of low expense ratios for most of its funds. In addition to asset management, Vanguard offers brokerage services, financial planning, annuities, and other services.

3. UBS Group

AUM: $3.26 trillion
UBS Group has four interdependent divisions that operate around the world. The Switzerland-based firm describes itself as the “only true global wealth manager.” About $2.3 trillion is tied up in wealth management versus $903 billion in asset management.

4. State Street Global Advisors

AUM: $3.12 trillion
Boston-based State Street is the subsidiary of State Street Corporation. It manages investments for a wide range of institutional clients including non-profits, local governments, associations, and even educational groups.

5. Fidelity

AUM: $3.2 trillion
Fidelity is an asset manager and a discount broker with more than 27 million customers. It offers an online platform for individual investors to buy and sell securities, and also manages entire portfolios on behalf of clients. In the summer of 2018, it made headlines when it began offering mutual funds with a zero expense ratio and minimum investment requirement.6

6. Allianz

AUM: $2.36 trillion
This German firm is primarily an insurer but operates two asset management divisions: Allianz Global Advisors and PIMCO. By itself, PIMCO has $1.76 trillion under management, which is good enough to also land it on this list.78

7. JPMorgan Chase

AUM: $1.9 trillion
Most people think of J.P. Morgan Chase as an investment bank, but it has a robust asset management business and got $1.3 billion in assets moved from BlackRock as part of a new custody arrangement in 2017.9

8. Bank of New York Mellon

AUM: $1.9 trillion
The history of this company dates back to its founder, Alexander Hamilton—perhaps you’ve heard of him. More than 230 years later, BNY Mellon manages investments for individuals and investments in 35 countries.10

9. Capital Group

AUM: $1.8 trillion
This Los Angeles-based firm was founded all the way back in 1931, making it one of the oldest in the world. It offers more than 40 mutual funds through American Funds Distributors, which is its subsidiary.11


AUM: $1.76 trillion
As mentioned earlier, PIMCO is managed under the same company as Allianz. Although it was acquired by a German company, it is headquartered in California, and it continues to operate as an autonomous subsidiary of Allianz.

Here's a list of the top 10 banks we will do business with:

1. Industrial and Commercial Bank of China

Established in 1984, the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China has quickly grown to become the largest bank in the world based on assets. Its current asset tally is a whopping 3.47 trillion. ICBC focuses most of their efforts in industry (the name kind of gives it away). They offer the majority of their loans in manufacturing, transportation, power and retail. This bank shows no signs of slowing down either. It reported a 3.3% rise in profit for the 3rd quarter of 2017.

2. China Construction Bank Corporation

The second-largest bank in China also happens to be the second-largest in the world. The China Construction Bank Corporation currently holds $3.02 trillion in assets. One of the older banks in China, CCB was founded in 1954. In 2005, Bank of America wanted to expand its business into China. So it purchased a 9% stake in CCB. That didn’t work out so well, however. And BOA needed to sell most of its stake in 2009 during the US financial crisis. In 2013, Bank of America sold its remaining position in CCB and has focused its Asian operations in Hong Kong.

3. Agricultural Bank of China

If you’re sensing a trend here, you’re not alone. Yet another Chinese bank, the Agricultural Bank of China ranks third largest in the world with $2.82 trillion in assets. Known as Ag Bank and founded in 1951, the Agricultural Bank of China has branch locations in Seoul, Singapore, Sydney, London, New York and many other of the world’s largest cities. Fun fact: In 2007, Ag Bank was victim of the largest Chinese bank robbery ever. Thieves stole $7.5 million.

4. Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (Mitsubishi)

With $2.63 trillion in assets, Mitsubishi is Japan’s largest bank holding/financial services group. Part of the Mitsubishi Corporation, the company provides a wide variety of financial and investment services including commercial banking, trust banking, international finance, and assets management services. With all of the accolades MUFG has garnered, it’s surprising to learn they were only founded in 2005.

Headquartered in Tokyo, Japan
Employs 106,000

5. Bank of China

Yet another Asian bank rounds out the top five. Bank of China controls $2.61 trillion in assets and was founded in 1912. While this bank is no longer 100% government-owned, the largest shareholder of the Bank of China is still the investment arm of the People’s Republic of China. The Bank of China is the second-largest lender in the country. It currently has two locations in the state of New York.

Still, the bank currently holds $1.93 trillion in assets and is one of the United States’ largest retail banks. Founded all the way back in 1852, Wells Fargo has close to 9,000 retail locations scattered across the United States. They became my bank of record when in 2009 when they purchased Wachovia.
