AsianInvestor has undertaken a research project to identify the top 100 asset management companies by assets invested in Asia Pacific.

Believed to be the first of its kind, we aim to outline how fund houses view this region versus other parts of the world, and determine whether they’re actually putting money to work here, or simply talking Asia up as a great growth opportunity.

The list of 100 firms is based on absolute AUM figures, although we also break out the derivative lists, such as the leading global fund firms invested in Asia by a percentage of global assets.

The full list is in AsianInvestor’s June issue with an accompanying write-up.

Below is the fourth round of figures, firms ranked 61-70, featuring eight Asian firms and two global fund houses. It has been slightly amended, with Korea Investment Management having entered the rankings at 59, therefore pushing these houses down one each. Our top 100 table has been updated in our online version.

This compares with numbers 71-80, which are more evenly split across Asia and global fund houses, and 81-90 and 91-100, both dominated by Asian companies.
