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 $11.3 billion as of June 30, 2010, a decrease of 10% from $12.6 billion as of March 31, 2010. The decrease in AUM was attributable to the decline in equity markets during the quarter, slightly offset by net flows in both U.S. and global investment services.
“Despite a quarter of negative equity market returns, we are pleased that there continues to be strong, growing interest in our investment strategies. Our emphasis on investing in high quality companies generating free cash flow and run by managements with successful records of allocating those cash flows, continues to attract new clients,” said William W. Priest, Chief Executive Officer of the Company.
