Investment funds

Bankia’s mutual fund manager, Bankia Fondos, has 297,336 investors and a broad catalogue of 88 products in all categories (fixed-income, equity, mixed, guaranteed, absolute return, global, etc.), so that customers can choose whichever one best matches their investment preferences. Funds are marketed through Bankia’s branch network and also through remote channels.

At the end of 2016, Bankia Fondos had 13,325 million of assets under management. Of that total, 13,015 million related to mutual funds, up 8.8% compared to 2015.

Pension plans

Bankia believes pension plans are a fundamental tool for encouraging a culture of saving, as they help employees provide for a more secure retirement, especially now that demographic pressure is threatening the sustainability of the public pension system as we know it. This business is therefore important to the bank. Distribution is through the branch network, backed increasingly by the online and mobile channels.

At 31 December 2016 Bankia had 6,842 million euros in personal, employer and associated pension plans (6,863 million euros in 2015) – all of which are tailored as far as possible to the needs of each customer – and 715,679 unitholders. It had a market share of 7.21% in personal pension plans in Spain. The assets were distributed as follows: 21.4% fixed income, 45.9% mixed, 27.3% guaranteed and 5.4% equity.
