Shareholder Servicing and Marketing Expenses
Shareholder servicing and marketing expenses for the fourth quarter of 2011 were $3.9 million, down 21% from $4.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2010, driven primarily by lower platform costs reflecting a decrease in average assets under management in proprietary funds.
General and Administrative Expenses
General and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter of 2011 were $9.5 million, a decrease of 13% from $10.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2010, due primarily to a decline in costs across several categories.Income Taxes For the fourth quarter of 2011, the adjusted effective tax rate was 44.3%, 2.0 percentage points higher than the 42.3% adjusted effective tax rate for the fourth quarter of 2010. The increase was due primarily to true-ups related to 2010 tax expense recorded in the fourth quarter of 2011, partly offset by a lower apportionment of income for state and local tax purposes in the fourth quarter of 2011. The GAAP effective tax rate was 45.0% for the fourth quarter of 2011, 3.6 percentage points higher than the 41.4% GAAP effective tax rate for the fourth quarter of 2010 due primarily to the reasons noted above.
