CEO Walt Bettinger commented, “After a long period of progress masked by environmental headwinds, our standout financial performance in 2013 more clearly reflected the significant growth we’ve achieved with our “through clients’ eyes” strategy. Our contemporary full-service investing model helped drive further expansion of our client base, leading to $5.4 billion in net revenues and net income that exceeded $1 billion for the first time since 2008. We met our financial expectations for the year: revenue growth of 11% exceeded the rise in expenses by over 2 percentage points – the high end of our target range; our pre-tax profit margin was consistent with our objective of at least 30%; and earnings per share reached $0.78, north of our mid-$0.70s goal.”
