pdf file Investment funds and asset management market in Poland, 2023

Over the last five years, the asset management sector in Poland has experienced stagnation, characterized by temporary fluctuations but lacking substantial growth in managed assets. However, 2023 brought some relief, with total assets under management in key segments* reaching over PLN 700 billion in the third quarter of the year, compared to PLN 636 billion at the end of 2022. Investment funds remained the key asset group, surpassing PLN 304 billion, followed by second-pillar pension funds with PLN 179 billion and insurance companies' reserves at PLN 162 billion. The smallest segment, third-pillar pension funds, saw a surge to PLN 60 billion in assets under management, exhibiting the fastest growth among all categories.

If compared to the other markets in the region, Poland has clearly the largest investment funds sector within the CEE. However, the value of managed assets has been growing slower than in most other CEE markets recently.Consequently, despite having the largest fund market by value, Poland is still behind a few peers in terms of assets value per capita or assets per unit of GDP.

The outlook
The total value of assets under management in Poland is anticipated to grow by over 40% between 2022 and 2025, marking the end of multi-year stagnation. High growth is expected in pension assets, particularly within the "new" third pillar (PPK).

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