    Perspective from Jim Cracchiolo, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer 

    “Ameriprise delivered another quarter of strong asset growth and financial results, driven by the power of our wealth management business. We’re serving more clients and deepening relationships with our engaging client experience, resulting in high satisfaction. Our comprehensive advice-based approach and leading capabilities drove Ameriprise client assets and advisor productivity to record highs in the second quarter.”

    “Our asset management, insurance and annuity businesses continue to generate competitive returns and consistent free cash flow, complementing wealth management. In addition to our ongoing investments, we’re taking strategic actions to free-up additional capital to invest further and return to shareholders at a differentiated level. This includes the recently announced sale of Ameriprise Auto & Home Insurance, which is on schedule to close in the fourth quarter.”

    Advice & Wealth Advice Management pretax adjusted operating earnings increased 7 percent to $376 million driven by strength in client activity, increased earnings on cash balances and only 3 percent equity market appreciation year-over-year, partially offset by continued investments for growth and higher mark-to-market impact on advisor deferred compensation expenses. Pretax adjusted operating margin remained strong at 22.7 percent.

    Adjusted operating net revenues increased 7 percent to $1.7 billion, reflecting strong client activity, increased advisor productivity and higher earnings on cash balances. Transactional activity grew 6 percent sequentially as client engagement continued to improve following recent market volatility. Adjusted operating expenses increased 7 percent to $1.3 billion, reflecting higher distribution expense and volume-related expense due to transactional activity, investments for growth and higher mark-to-market impact on advisor deferred compensation expense.

    Advice & Wealth Management total client assets increased 7 percent to $608 billion. Organic growth remains strong with $4.8 billion of wrap net inflows. Total wrap assets increased 13 percent to $292 billion. Client brokerage cash balances were essentially flat to a year ago at $24.3 billion.

    Adjusted operating net revenue per advisor on a trailing 12-month basis increased 6 percent to $638,000. Total advisors increased to 9,951 and advisor retention remained strong. 72 experienced advisors moved their practices to Ameriprise in the quarter, with 19 percent higher productivity than last year’s experienced advisor recruits.

    (2) Strategy added to an intermediary client home office model that is not included in flows

    Asset Management pretax adjusted operating earnings were $164 million, down $19 million from the prior year period, reflecting a decline in net revenues offset by lower expenses. Second quarter net pretax adjusted operating margin was 37.1 percent.

    Adjusted operating revenues declined 6 percent driven by the cumulative impact of net outflows, lower equity market appreciation, unfavorable foreign exchange translation and lower seed money gains, partially offset by higher performance fees. Adjusted operating expenses declined 4 percent reflecting lower distribution expenses, and well-managed general and administrative expenses, partially offset by Brexit and other regulatory-related costs.

    Net outflows in the quarter were $1.9 billion, which included $2.9 billion of reinvested dividends. In North America, retail flows continued to improve on a sequential basis to $1.2 billion of inflows, reflecting continued market share gains at several large retail intermediaries. In EMEA, Brexit and geopolitical uncertainty continued to mute retail flows, however, there was improvement on a sequential basis to $0.7 billion of outflows. Global institutional outflows excluding former parent related assets were $1.4 billion. Former parent related outflows improved to $1.0 billion. In addition, during the quarter a strategy was added to a model portfolio and was funded initially for more than $800 million; this is considered assets under advisement and not included in net flows.

    Annuities pretax adjusted operating earnings were $129 million, up 6 percent.

    Variable annuity pretax adjusted operating earnings were up 8 percent to $119 million. Variable annuity sales declined 16 percent year-over-year to $1.0 billion, however, sales improved 19 percent on a sequential basis following volatile markets in late 2018. Annuity net amount at risk as a percent of account values was 0.6 percent for living benefits and 0.1 percent for death benefits, one of the lowest among major variable annuity writers.

    Fixed annuity pretax adjusted operating earnings were $10 million, reflecting continued spread compression from the extended period of low interest rates, lower account balances and the reinsurance of 20 percent of the block in the first quarter. Account balances declined 6 percent from limited new product sales and continued lapses.

    Protection pretax adjusted operating earnings increased to $65 million compared to $63 million a year ago. Overall claims were within expected ranges, though life claims were unfavorable to the year ago quarter. VUL/UL cash sales were $70 million, down 7 percent, primarily due to lower indexed universal life lump sum and installment sales.

    Corporate & Other pretax adjusted operating loss excluding Long Term Care and Auto & Home was in line with expectations at $79 million, primarily related to the higher mark-to-market impact on share-based compensation expenses and investments in growth initiatives.

    Long Term Care pretax adjusted operating earnings improved to $4 million in the quarter, reflecting slower reserve growth related to premium rate increases and expanded benefit reduction offerings, as well as higher mortality.

    Auto & Home pretax adjusted operating earnings were $14 million in the quarter. Catastrophe losses were $18 million.

    Taxes
    The adjusted operating effective tax rate in the quarter was 16.8 percent, in line with the prior year. The full year adjusted operating effective tax rate is estimated to be in the 16 percent range.

    (1) Adjustments reflect the trailing twelve months’ sum of after-tax net realized investment gains/losses, net of deferred sales inducement costs (“DSIC”) and deferred acquisition costs (“DAC”) amortization, unearned revenue amortization and the reinsurance accrual; market impact on variable annuity guaranteed benefits, net of hedges and related DSIC and DAC amortization; the market impact on indexed universal life benefits, net of hedges and related DAC amortization, unearned revenue amortization, and the reinsurance accrual; the market impact on fixed index annuity benefits, net of hedges and the related DAC amortization; the market impact of hedges to offset interest rate changes on unrealized gains or losses for certain investments; mean reversion related impacts; integration/restructuring charges; and the impact of consolidating certain investment entities. After-tax is calculated using the statutory tax rate of 21%.
    (2) Adjusted operating return on equity excluding accumulated other comprehensive income (AOCI) is calculated using the trailing twelve months of earnings excluding the after-tax net realized investment gains/losses, net of deferred sales inducement costs (“DSIC”) and deferred acquisition costs (“DAC”) amortization, unearned revenue amortization and the reinsurance accrual; market impact on variable annuity guaranteed benefits, net of hedges and related DSIC and DAC amortization; the market impact on indexed universal life benefits, net of hedges and related DAC amortization, unearned revenue amortization, and the reinsurance accrual; the market impact on fixed index annuity benefits, net of hedges and the related DAC amortization; the market impact of hedges to offset interest rate changes on unrealized gains or losses for certain investments; mean reversion related impacts; integration/restructuring charges; the impact of consolidating certain investment entities; and discontinued operations in the numerator, and Ameriprise Financial shareholders’ equity excluding AOCI and the impact of consolidating investment entities using a five-point average of quarter-end equity in the denominator. After-tax is calculated using the statutory tax rate of 21%.
