Zacks Equity Research

AllianceBernstein Holding L.P. AB announced assets under management (AUM) for May 2020. The company’s preliminary month-end AUM of $596 billion increased 3.5% from the prior month. Market appreciation and total firm-wide net inflows primarily drove the rise.

At the end of the reported month, AllianceBernstein’s Equity AUM grew 5.2% sequentially to $222 billion. Fixed Income AUM also increased 2.3% from April 2020 to $307 billion. Others AUM (including certain multi-asset services and solutions, and some alternative investments) was up 3.1% from the prior month to $67 billion.

In terms of channel, month-end Institutions AUM of $280 billion was up 2.6% from April 2020. Retail AUM increased 5.2% on a sequential basis to $223 billion and Private Wealth AUM grew 2.2% to $93 billion.

Continued improvement in AUM is expected to support AllianceBernstein’s top line. So far this year, shares of the company have lost 12.2% compared with the industry’s decline of 0.3%.
