The Boston Behemoth's asset management division (which is being taken over by Bart Grenier as Steve Neff is retiring) saw AUM rise 26 percent last year to a record $3.195 trillion, the team revealed yesterday in Fidelity's 2019 shareholder update. (The asset management division is highlighted on pages 20-22 of the 27-page report.) Net inflows climbed more than 87 percent from 2018 to $193 billion in 2019.

Those inflows break down into: $121 billion into Fidelity's money market funds, $66 billion into its index funds, $49 billion into its managed accounts, and $19 billion into its multi-asset class funds. Yet active equity fund outflows jumped 27 percent to $65 billion.

Meanwhile, Fidelity's institutional division (that includes Fidelity Clearing and Custody Solutions, which handles RIA custody and B-D clearing, as well FundsNetwork, Fidelity's investment supermarket) saw AUA jump 25 percent year-over-year to $3.2 trillion at the end of 2019. (The institutional division, headed by Mike Durbin, is highlighted on pages 17-19 of the report.)

Overall, Fidelity's parent (FMR) brought in record revenue of $20.9 billion (up 2.5 percent from 2018) and record operating income of $6.9 billion (up from 9.5 percent. Operating expenses dipped very slightly to $14.1 billion. AUA rose 24 percent to $8.32 trillion. (By comparison, the S&P 500 rose 31.5 percent on a total return basis last year, while the Bloomberg Barclays Agg rose 8.7 percent.)
