Dublin, Nov. 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Global Mutual Fund Assets Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report, 2023-2030” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
The global mutual fund assets market is on a trajectory for impressive growth, with projections indicating it will reach a market size of USD 936.1 billion by 2030. This growth is driven by a substantial compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.9% from 2023 to 2030, underpinned by several key factors.
One of the primary drivers of this growth is the advancements in technology and the proliferation of online investment platforms. These platforms have revolutionized the investment landscape, making it easier for investors to research, compare, and invest in mutual funds. The convenience of online investing, combined with features like automated portfolio management and goal-based investing, has not only attracted a broader investor base but also expanded the reach of mutual funds. Furthermore, the growth of retirement savings and pension plans has added significant momentum to the market, as individuals and organizations prioritize long-term financial planning and wealth accumulation.
The popularity of mutual funds as a wealth accumulation tool is further reinforced by their accessibility through retirement plans, such as 401(k) plans in the United States. This accessibility has made mutual funds a go-to choice for retirement savers. Regulatory frameworks and investor protection measures also play a pivotal role in driving market growth by enhancing investor confidence. Regulators establish guidelines and requirements for mutual funds, ensuring transparency, accountability, and fair treatment of investors, which in turn fosters trust and encourages more individuals and institutions to invest in mutual funds.
Additionally, the economic stimulus measures implemented by governments globally in response to the COVID-19 pandemic have had a positive impact on the global market. Measures such as reduced interest rates and fiscal stimulus packages have created a favorable investment environment, resulting in increased inflows into mutual funds. The recovery of financial markets after the initial pandemic-induced volatility has boosted investor confidence and spurred them to allocate their funds to mutual funds for potential returns.
