  • The global ETF industry has enjoyed rapid growth, now controlling a massive $5.8 trillion in assets under management (AUM).
  • The growth rate for private capital funds increased from 14% in 2018 to 15.1% in the first half of 2019.
  • E&Y estimates that if wealthy individuals who qualify as accredited investors shift just 1% of their current holdings of public equities to private equity, that would represent $149 billion of net new money.
