Company Report

US-Based Asset Managers: Recovery in AUM, Revenue, and Profitability Already Baked Into Share Prices

All the US-based asset managers we cover have reported their first-quarter 2024 earnings, and in some cases revealed managed asset levels for April 2024, and we now have a better sense of how recent market activity has been affecting results. The rally in the US equity markets since the middle of November 2023 has lifted most traditional and alternative-asset manager valuations closer to our fair value estimates.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

The Carlyle Group, with $307.4 billion in fee-earning AUM at the end of December 2023, is one of the go-to firms for institutional and high-net-worth investors looking for exposure to alternative assets.

Bears

A prolonged downturn in the credit and/or equity markets could leave potential investors in The Carlyle Group's funds with limited liquidity and large commitments to other funds, making it very difficult for the firm to raise new capital.
