Gross sales and other inflows in the quarter were $13.2 billion, up 15% from the first quarter. The increase was driven largely by 26% higher income product sales and strong flows into Parametric’s emerging market and index tracking strategies. Redemption and other outflows of $12.7 billion were flat versus the first quarter. The $567 million of net inflows for the second quarter translates into organic growth of just over 1%, not where we want it to be, but a decided improvement after two quarters of negative flows.We have seen an improving investment performance trend for our strategies in a number of asset classes. We now have 31 funds with at least one share class with an overall Morningstar rating of 4 or 5 stars, up from 25 such funds a year ago. The improving performance of our family of municipal bond fund is coming at an opportune time as the prospect of higher federal income taxes in 2013 moves ever closer.
