Assets under management
At the end of 2009, we managed client assets of CHF 49.5 billion. Compared with the figure for the previous year (CHF 46.1 billion), this represents an increase of 7.4 percent. The continuing tax discussions made the acquisition of new clients more difficult. Tax amnesties in various countries led to great uncertainty. Consequently, we registered a net new money outflow of CHF 1.0 billion (previous year: minus CHF 0.6 billion). The performance-related expansion in assets amounted to CHF 4.4 billion (previous year: minus CHF 13.9 billion) or +9.6 percent.
Assets in own-managed funds climbed by 19.8 percent to CHF 3.6 billion and assets with discretionary mandates by 14.7 percent to CHF 8.8 billion. At 31 December 2009, other assets under management stood at CHF 37.1 billion (31 December 2008: CHF 35.4 billion).
