MAPFRE has entered the Top 10 of asset management firms in Spain, with assets under management totaling 9.9 billion euros, according to the barometer prepared by FundsPeople monthly. When management of the group's financial investments is taken into account, the total exceeds 30 billion.

Mutual funds experienced the best growth so far this year, standing at 3.15 billion euros, up 12% on last year’s close. MAPFRE AM has a wide range of funds in place to adapt as much as possible to different risk profiles: from equity vehicles with ESG characteristics, such as MAPFRE AM Inclusión Responsable, to the latest guaranteed fund launches, such as FONDMAPFRE Garantía II.

“We’re growing a lot in mutual funds thanks to distribution agreements with other financial institutions,” explains Álvaro Anguita, CEO of MAPFRE AM. "In pension funds, we’re also seeing significant positive net subscriptions. These are quite good results, taking into account the current economic context."

MAPFRE AM also stands out in terms of profitability, with an average return at the end of October of 3.52 percent, as highlighted by the financial newspaper Expansión based on data from Vdos. The Group's vehicles are therefore among the most profitable among those of the largest asset managers.

Alternative assets are a good way to diversify the portfolio, and MAPFRE knows it. Since 2018, the Group has worked to have greater exposure to this area and explore new investment opportunities: as of last year, €1.35 billion had been committed to this type of asset.

Fixed income is shaping up to be "the star asset" this year, although uncertainty regarding interest rate movements could put some investors off. Juan Nozal, fund manager of MAPFRE AM, explains how these movements impact bond prices and yields.
