Scout Investments Surpasses $25 Billion In Assets Under Management

Scout Investments, Inc. (Scout) announced that the firm’s assets under management (AUM) recently surpassed $25 billion.

The combination of a robust inflow of new assets, positive financial markets and strong performance fueled the growth in AUM, despite the backdrop of a very uncertain market environment across the globe in 2012.

Scout has received many accolades, including national recognition from leading rating organizations and financial publications, which have helped increase investor awareness of Scout. In 2012, two Scout funds received Lipper Fund Awards for best in class. In addition, the fixed income team at Reams Asset Management (Reams), a division of Scout Investments, was nominated for 2012 Morningstar U.S. Fixed-Income Fund Manager of the Year.

“We could not have achieved $25 billion in AUM without the hard work and strong commitment from every member of the Scout team, as well as the trust we have earned from our clients,” said Andy Iseman, chief executive officer of Scout Investments.

Scout is growing its investment offerings and diversifying the business. During the past two years, Scout has broadened marketing and sales efforts into the institutional and sub-advisory marketplace, while continuing to serve clients and advisors in the intermediary channel. “Institutional investor relationships have been a positive contributor to AUM growth,” said Iseman. During this time period, Scout has also added four new funds, including two new fixed income funds which leverage the strength of the team at Reams.

“We will continue to execute our long-term strategy to be a leading asset manager, supporting multiple distribution channels with high-quality equity and fixed income solutions,” said Iseman.
