  4. While assets under management of joint-ventures are included in article 1 above, please note we allow for 100% of the JV’s assets to be included in the firm wide total only if the shareholding in the JV is 35% or more. If it is less than 35%, the AUM should then be pro-rata, based on the level of equity ownership. For example, if company A has a JV and owns 20% of the JV, company A should only include 20% of the JV’s AUM in the firm-wide total.
