Euromoney 40th anniversary special: Focus on Erste Asset Management

Although it was founded only last year, Erste Asset Management has established itself as the number one player in its field in central and eastern Europe. Leveraging off the experience and distribution capabilities of the Erste Group, which outside its home market of Austria also operates in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Romania and Ukraine, EAM has access to Erste Group’s 16 million-strong customer base in the region and consequently boasts €32 billion of assets under management.
