Highlights

The Austrian retail savings and investments sector accounts for 31% of the total savings and investments market. Within household portfolios, mutual funds represent the largest asset class and between 2003 and 2005, the proportional allocation of household assets to mutual funds increased steadily.

30% of the increase in household assets between 2004 and 2005 was attributed to appreciation in the value of stocks and mutual funds. In 2005, Austrian households demonstrated increased demand for domestic fixed-income fund shares and balanced funds with a capital guarantee.

Austrian banking groups also dominate the mutual funds sector. Bank Austria Creditanstalt AG (BA-CA) leads the banking sector, by total assets. Capital Invest die Kapitalanlagegesellschaft der BA/CA Gr. GmbH (renamed Pioneer Investments Austria in November 2006) ranks third in the Austrian mutual funds sector, by assets under management.
