New statistics released today by the Australian Custodial Services Association (ACSA) show the amount of total assets under custody for Australian investors grew by 4.9 per cent in six months to 31 December 2017.


The new figures represent continuing growth for the industry, with total assets under custody (AUC) reaching over $3.49 trillion. Consistent with the growth in total assets under custody, the amount of overseas client investment into Australia (assets held in sub-custody) also grew by 6 per cent to $1.47 billion during the second half of 2017 – representing continued attractiveness of Australia as an investment destination for foreign institutional asset owners.


In addition to asset values, the statistics show that transaction volumes for equities increased during the six months to 31 December 2017, continuing the recent upward trend. Transactions, as measured by settlements, illustrate the significant support the custody industry provides to the trading activities of institutional investors, with 9.5 million trades settled during the second half of 2017.
