Business Update 7

  • Net client cash outflows moderated to $4.5 billion for the second quarter of 2012
  • The Company has decided to refocus on its long-established expertise in cross-border investing and will therefore discontinue its US Equity strategies. This action will enable the Company to better manage its resources for current business conditions.

Management Commentary

“We are realigning our business in order to focus on the asset classes where we believe active investment management offers the greatest opportunities to benefit clients,” said Richard Pell, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer. “Accordingly, we are closing our US Equity strategies, which at the end of the second quarter represented less than one percent of the firm’s total assets under management.”
