Biggest 10 companies in the world
Michael Selby-Green, provided by Published 12:00 am, Monday, June 11, 2018 Dan Kitwood/Getty The private wealth management industry had a strong year in 2017 with 25 of the leading global players increasing their assets under management (AUM) by almost 14%, as the number of high net-worth individuals and affluent investors has continued to grow. UBS tops the rankings with $2,402.8 billion AUM, over double that of its closest rival. China Merchants Bank also entered the top 10 in 2017 and was the first Chinese bank ever to do so. Much of this success is the result of greater wealth across the Asia-Pacific region and growing interest in professional management by the high-net worth individuals there. This meant Chinese growth was about 3.5% higher then the rest of the top wealth managers, according to the research by GlobalData and Private Banker International. Deutsche Bank, EFG International and ABN Amro were the only wealth managers in the ranking to lose ground in … [Read more...] about The 15 biggest wealth managers in the world

Samsung on the other hand makes their own chips so naturally their demand would not be as great as Apple's. posted on 24 Jan 2012, 10:20 7 3. JeffdaBeat (unregistered) But by that logic, Samsung shouldn't be spending anything on chips instead of the reported 16.7 billion...which is relatively close to what Apple spend on chips. Samsung may make their own chips, but it doesn't get to do so for free. posted on 24 Jan 2012, 12:16 4 10. SuperAndroidEvo (Posts: 4888; Member since: 15 Apr 2011) Samsung STILL sells many feature phones, so those they go & buy. Also they only make their top-end Exynos for themselves. Samsung makes other products not just mobile phones, so they may need to buy chips for those products as well.

SuperAndroidEvo (Posts: 4888; Member since: 15 Apr 2011) This is what I have been saying all along. Apple is only worried about looks & ONLY looks. This is CLEARLY evident in the design flaws of the Apple iPhone 6 & 6 Plus. All the issues the iPhone 6 & 6 Plus suffer from could have been avoided with some R&D. posted on 03 Dec 2014, 08:09 8 12. Martin_Cooper (Posts: 1728; Member since: 30 Jul 2013) You do realise Samsung produces home appliances, products for army, medical equipment and s**tloads of other stuff? Them being on no1 is kinda obvious and I am sure none of you clueless noobs have idea that not all that money goes for the mobile division which for samsung is a small part of its colossal business of many things. 13. marcski07 (Posts: 600; Member since: 25 Apr 2014) exactly … [Read more...] about Comments for : Report: Samsung is the second-biggest R&D spender in the world for 2014, Apple not in Top 20
