Next time we may use updated AUM data to compare with GDP grow rate and see the effect of QE. (world bank data)

PWC forecasted AUM in South America, Asia, Africa, Middle East (SAAAME) economies are set to grow faster than in the developed world in the years leading up to 2020

To be concluded, with US dollar strength and lower growth rate, the global AUM glooms

/China market may be expected under entering MSCI and RMB internalization
