“We ended 2013 with very strong results, posting both record total company operating earnings for the year and record assets under management. These results were particularly strong in light of continued macroeconomic volatility, demonstrating the strength of our global investment management strategy and our ability to focus and execute,” said Larry D. Zimpleman, chairman, president and chief executive officer. “Looking ahead, we’ll continue to take advantage of opportunities created by changing global demographics by having the right strategy in the right markets at the right time to generate growth for years to come.”
