Research report: Investment funds and asset management market in Poland, 2022

pdf file Investment funds and asset management market in Poland, 2022

2022 was a difficult year for asset managers operating in Poland. The industry had to deal with a rare case of simultaneous declines in valuations of multiple asset classes including stocks and bonds. Nevertheless, asset managers coped well with lower asset prices and with increased funds volatility. Total assets* under management in Poland fell sharply in the first half of 2022, reaching PLN 621 billion as compared to PLN 708 billion at the end of 2021, and they remained in a declining trend through the third quarter of the year.

The outlook
The total value of assets under management is expected to recover in 2023 and then to grow subsequently in 2024 and 2025. A likely rebound in asset valuations will provide a relief while new flows, in particular within insurance 3rd pillar and retail investment funds are likely to drive total AuM to new highs in 2024/2025. The planned dismantling of the old 2nd pillar pension funds (OFE) is still a big question mark and the government might postpone the decision past the upcoming 2023 parliamentary elections.

* Across key categories: Investment funds, Insurance assets, Pension assets (2nd and 3rd pillar); Excluded are bank and structured deposits, equities and bonds held directly by private individuals
