Erste Asset Management (Erste AM) coordinates and is responsible for all asset management activities across Erste Group and has been successfully operating in the market since 1965 (formerly under the name ERSTE-SPARINVEST).
As part of Erste Group, we are among the leading asset managers in the CEE region. We unite the flexibility of a boutique manager with the size of a multinational bank under one roof and are thus able to provide retail investors with a comprehensive range of mutual fund solutions. In addition to institutional share certificates, we also offer professional investors tailormade solutions in individually managed mandates.
With more than 386 employees – some 100 of whom are investment professionals – we manage assets of EUR EUR 68.36bn* at our offices in Austria, Germany, Croatia, Romania, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, and Hungary.
Our range of products for institutional investors
Erste AM sees itself as full-range provider for institutional clients across the entire field of investment.
The focus in the German-speaking region is on our successful core competencies of fixed income management, emerging markets, and responsible investments (also referred to as sustainable investments). We also offer our clients individual multi asset management solutions.
The topic of sustainability comes with a long tradition at Erste AM: we launched our first ESG fund in 2001. Since then, we have built a dedicated research team and developed and successfully introduced a wide range of sustainable funds, for which we have received numerous awards. With assets under management of EUR 15.38bn, Erste Asset Management is today one of the most important providers of ethically sustainable investment funds in the German-speaking region.*

No economic future without innovation – recognising and benefiting from trends early has always been a trademark of Erste Asset Management. In 1990, we were among the first asset managers to launch an equity fund for Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). Since then, our range has grown enormously, and our years of experience in asset management continue to drive the pioneering spirit of Erste Asset Management.
