A milestone year for Atlantic Trust, with 27 consecutive quarters of growth leading to record $24 billion in assets under management

ATLANTA, Feb. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Atlantic Trust, the U.S. private wealth management division of CIBC (NYSE: CM) (TSX: CM)—today announced the firm achieved a record $24 billion in assets under management (AUM) supported by $1.9 billion in positive net client asset flows, for the year ended December 31, 2013. This marks the 27th consecutive quarter of positive net organic growth for the firm.

"It was a solid year for Atlantic Trust and our clients on a number of fronts," said Jack Markwalter, chairman and CEO. "For the firm, we believe we found the right, long-term fit for Atlantic Trust with CIBC, and our substantial growth was attributable to an inflow of new client relationships, outstanding client retention and strong, risk-adjusted investment performance."

In 2013, the firm achieved 99 per cent retention of clients entrusting more than $5 million to Atlantic Trust. The $1.9 billion in net inflows reflects a healthy blend of 27 per cent from net client additions and 73 per cent from net new relationships, typically referrals from clients and their tax and legal advisors as well as industry professionals.

"We have been able to differentiate Atlantic Trust over the last seven years through dedicated client service and an innovative and disciplined investment platform—instilling a sense of confidence and trust in our clients," notes Eric Propper, president. "Our firm's success continues to underscore the importance of putting clients' interests at the center of all we do."

All data is as of December 31, 2013.
