Epoch Investment Partners, Inc. (“ Epoch” or the “Company”), a leading investment manager and investment adviser and the sole operating subsidiary of Epoch Holding Corporation (Nasdaq: EPHC), today announced that its assets under management ("AUM") were approximately $12.6 billion as of March 31, 2010, an increase of 11% from $11.4 billion as of December 31, 2009. A significant component of the increase in AUM was the funding of several new institutional and sub-advisory mandates, in both U.S. and global products.
“We are pleased to report another quarter of meaningful AUM growth,” said William W. Priest, Chief Executive Officer of the Company. “As a result of our strong risk-adjusted investment returns, interest in our U.S. and global investment strategies continues to materialize in the form of new mandates,” stated Mr. Priest. “Appropriately, we continue to make the necessary investments in the Firm’s infrastructure to ensure we can meet our growth expectations, and provide our clients the highest level of service possible.”
As previously announced, the Company commenced posting monthly AUM updates on its website in early November.
