December 31, 2013 Compared with September 30, 2013 

Revenue

Total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $73.4 million, a decrease of 0.8% from $74.0 million for the third quarter of 2013, primarily attributable to:

  • Portfolio consulting and other revenue decreased 17.7% to $2.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 from $2.7 million in the three months ended September 30, 2013, primarily due to lower average assets under advisement from model-based strategies;
  • Institutional account revenue decreased 0.9% to $19.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 from $19.7 million in the three months ended September 30, 2013 primarily due to lower average assets under management;
  • Open-end mutual fund revenue decreased 0.3% to $28.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 from $28.9 million in the three months ended September 30, 2013 primarily due to lower average assets under management;
  • Closed-end mutual fund revenue increased 1.2% to $19.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 from $19.1 million in the three months ended September 30, 2013 primarily due to higher average assets under management.

Expenses

Expenses for the fourth quarter of 2013 were $44.1 million, a decrease of 4.8% from $46.3 million for the third quarter of 2013, primarily due to the following:

  • Employee compensation and benefits decreased $1.7 million primarily due to a reduction in incentive compensation;
  • Distribution and service fees decreased $235,000 primarily due to lower average assets under management in open-end mutual funds;
  • General and administrative expenses decreased $270,000 primarily due to lower professional fees partially offset by higher marketing expenses.

Operating Margin

The company's operating margin increased to 40.0% for the fourth quarter of 2013 compared with 37.4% for the three months ended September 30, 2013. The 253bps increase is primarily due to a reduction in the compensation and benefits to revenue ratio.

Non-operating Income

Non-operating income, excluding net income attributable to redeemable noncontrolling interest, increased to $2.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013, primarily due to higher earnings from the company's seed investments, compared with non-operating income of $1.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013.

Assets Under Management

Assets under management were $45.9 billion as of December 31, 2013, a decrease of 0.9% from $46.3 billion at September 30, 2013 and an increase of 0.2% from $45.8 billion at December 31, 2012. The decrease from September 30, 2013 was due to net outflows of $927 million, primarily from the large cap value strategy, partially offset by market appreciation of $498 million. The increase from December 31, 2012 was due to market appreciation of $2.1 billion, partially offset by net outflows of $2.0 billion, primarily from the global/international real estate and large cap value strategies.

The decrease from September 30, 2013 was due to net outflows of $683 million, primarily from the large cap value strategy partially offset by inflows into commodities, and partially offset by market appreciation of $318 million. The decrease from December 31, 2012 was due to net outflows of $3.4 billion, primarily from the global/international real estate and large cap value strategies, and market appreciation of $1.5 billion. Average assets under management for institutional accounts was $23.6 billion for the quarter ended December 31, 2013, a decrease of 0.4% from $23.7 billion for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 and a decrease of 3.0% from $24.4 billion for the quarter ended December 31, 2012.

The increase from December 31, 2012 was due to net inflows of $702 million, primarily from the U.S. real estate and preferred securities strategies, and market appreciation of $352 million. Average assets under management for open-end mutual funds was $14.3 billion for the quarter ended December 31, 2013, a decrease of 0.3% from $14.4 billion for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 and an increase of 13.8% from $12.6 billion for the quarter ended December 31, 2012.

Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

Traditional on-premises data centers have long been the domain of modern data platforms like Apache Hadoop, meaning companies who build their business on public cloud were challenged to run Big Data processing and analytics at scale. But recent advancements in Hadoop performance, security, and most importantly cloud-native integrations, are giving organizations the ability to truly gain value from all their data. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, David Tishgart, Director of Product Marketing ...
Digitization is driving a fundamental change in society that is transforming the way businesses work with their customers, their supply chains and their people. Digital transformation leverages DevOps best practices, such as Agile Parallel Development, Continuous Delivery and Agile Operations to capitalize on opportunities and create competitive differentiation in the application economy. However, information security has been notably absent from the DevOps movement. Speed doesn’t have to negat...
If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed.

Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...
The vision of a connected smart home is becoming reality with the application of integrated wireless technologies in devices and appliances. The use of standardized and TCP/IP networked wireless technologies in line-powered and battery operated sensors and controls has led to the adoption of radios in the 2.4GHz band, including Wi-Fi, BT/BLE and 802.15.4 applied ZigBee and Thread. This is driving the need for robust wireless coexistence for multiple radios to ensure throughput performance and th...
Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
