Top 100: the 25 biggest wealth managers

We share the biggest 25 firms by AUM according to our annual Top 100 survey, ranked in descending order.

One of the chief metrics of success for many wealth firms is whether they are growing their assets under management (AUM).

With that in mind, respondents to our annual Top 100 survey are asked to reveal their firm's assets.

Several of the smaller firms to appear in 2018's report appear to have grown funds rapidly in the last year or so, while a couple of larger stalwarts have seen notable declines.

We share the Top 100's biggest 25 firms by AUM, ranked in descending order.

Notes: 

*Some of the larger international wealth managers did not provide a breakdown of UK assets, so the global AUM figures are provided.

*Some firms failed to provide 2017 figures, so we are unable to provide year on year growth comparison figures.
