T. Rowe Price Group’s (TROW) total assets under management (or AUM) totaled ~$1.0 trillion at the end of the first quarter. The company’s total AUM is sensitive to the equity market’s fluctuations.
Analysts expect subdued returns for non-diversified asset managers (XLF) in 2018 compared to 2017. This trend is primarily due to high valuations of equities, rising interest rates, and shifting of funds toward commodities that result in higher input prices.
The first quarter hasn’t been a good one for asset managers. Global issues such as trade war fears, along with the expectations related to interest rates, negatively impacted the markets. When equity markets decline, the value of the holdings of asset managers (XLF) like State Street Corporation (STT), T. Rowe Price Group (TROW), BlackRock (BLK), and Invesco Limited (IVZ) also decline. This reduces the total assets under management (or AUM).
The performance of T. Rowe Price Group (TROW), a traditional asset manager, is impacted by the level of the broader equity markets. The company derives its base fees from its total assets under management (or AUM). So, global economic issues impacting the equity markets indirectly impacts the performance of asset managers (XLF) like BlackRock (BLK), State Street Corporation (STT), and Invesco (IVZ).
This growth is expected to come from ETFs and its Retail segment’s offerings, partially offset by weaker performance in the Institutional segment. ETFs are expected to see subdued flows due to outflows from debt in the first quarter.
