French term or phrase: masses commercialisées
Report on an investment bank's business:

"Les masses à fin avril :
. Les masses commercialisées à fin avril s'élèvent à 14,015 Mds€, soit une hausse de
379 millions €. Depuis le début de l'année, ces masses sont en hausse de 769 M€.
. Les masses gérées non commercialisées s'élèvent à 25,113 Md€, elles n'ont augmenté que de 17 millions d'euros en avril et depuis le début de l'année de 3,320 Mds€.
. Les masses globales à fin avril s'établissent à 39,128 Mds€ soit une augmentation de 4,089 Mds€ depuis le début de l'année."

Does "masses" here means "funds"? or perhaps "assets under management"?

TIA for any help here.
