    February 1, 2020 by Ameriprise Financial, Inc.

    MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ameriprise Financial, Inc. (NYSE: AMP):

    Earnings Per Diluted Share

     

    Return on Equity, ex. AOCI

    Fourth Quarter 2019:

     

     

    Fourth Quarter 2019:

     

    GAAP

    $3.53

     

    GAAP

    33.1%

    Adjusted Operating

    $4.20

     

    Adjusted Operating (1)

    38.6%

    • Adjusted operating earnings per diluted share increased 11 percent to $4.20 and adjusted operating return on equity increased 80 basis points to 38.6 percent.(2) Operating results in Corporate were negatively impacted by $42 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, related to elevated impairments on low income housing investments and severance, as well as compensation expense associated with the company’s share price appreciation in the quarter.
    • Ameriprise closed on the sale of its Auto & Home business to American Family Insurance, which added over $700 million to our excess capital. The transaction generated a $161 million net benefit on a full year GAAP pretax basis and was excluded from operating results.
    • Adjusted operating net revenue was up 6 percent to $3.0 billion, excluding Auto & Home.
    • Assets under management and administration were $973 billion and Advice & Wealth Management total client assets were $643 billion – both represented record highs.
    • Advice & Wealth Management and Asset Management generated approximately 75 percent of adjusted operating revenue and pretax adjusted operating earnings in the quarter.
    • Total pretax adjusted operating margin was a strong 21.2 percent, driven by a 22.6 percent margin in Advice & Wealth Management and a 36.2 percent net adjusted margin in Asset Management.
    • Ameriprise generated substantial free cash flow in the year and returned $0.7 billion to shareholders in the quarter through share repurchase and dividends, for a total of $2.4 billion for the full year. Excess capital increased to $2.2 billion at year end.

    (1) Excludes third quarter unlocking impact.

    (2) See reconciliation on page 8.

     

    Perspective from Jim Cracchiolo, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

     

    “Ameriprise delivered another strong quarter, completing a year of significant progress. We served more clients in our affluent target market, earned strong asset flows and deepened the personal, advice-based relationships our advisors have with clients.

     

    “Advice & Wealth Management is leading our growth, and Asset Management is gaining traction with steady improvement in client flows over the past several quarters. In 2019, total assets under management and administration across the firm reached a new high, up 18 percent.

     

    “Our capital strength remains an important differentiator. Our business generates significant free cash flow and with our strategic actions in 2019, we freed-up additional capital to invest for growth and return to shareholders. In the quarter, we returned $689 million to shareholders through dividends and ongoing share repurchases. And on a full-year basis, we returned $2.4 billion, which is 110 percent of our adjusted operating earnings in-line with our plan.

    “As we look forward, Ameriprise is in an excellent position to serve even more individual investors and institutions through personal, advice-based relationships and high-performing solutions.”

    Advice & Wealth Management pretax adjusted operating earnings increased 5 percent to $387 million with strength in client activity and improved equity markets that more than offset the significant decline in short term interest rates. Pretax adjusted operating margin of 22.6 percent remained strong.

    Adjusted operating net revenues increased 8 percent to $1.7 billion, reflecting strong organic growth and equity market appreciation that more than offset headwinds from a decline in short term interest rates.

    Expenses increased 9 percent reflecting strong business performance and higher activity levels that led to a 9 percent increase in distribution expenses. General and administrative expenses, excluding bank-related expenses, increased 6 percent and were in line with expectations as planned investments for future growth were partially offset by expense reengineering.

    Total client assets increased 19 percent to $643 billion. Organic growth remains strong with $4.4 billion of wrap net inflows. Total wrap assets increased 26 percent to $318 billion. Client brokerage cash balances declined 8 percent to $25.4 billion as cash balances a year ago were at record highs due to market dislocation. On a sequential basis, client brokerage cash balances increased following a normal seasonal pattern.

    Adjusted operating net revenue per advisor on a trailing 12-month basis increased 6 percent to $664,000. Total advisors were 9,871, demonstrating solid advisor retention and experienced advisor recruiting with 63 advisors moving their practices to Ameriprise in the quarter.

    Asset Management pretax adjusted operating earnings were $178 million, up $25 million from the prior year period, reflecting equity market appreciation and strong performance fees, which more than offset the cumulative impact of net outflows. Fourth quarter net pretax adjusted operating margin was 36.2 percent.

    Adjusted operating revenues improved 9 percent driven by market appreciation and performance fees, partially offset by the cumulative impact of net outflows.

    Adjusted operating expenses increased 7 percent, which included higher distribution expenses. General and administrative expenses remain well managed and included higher performance fees and year-end compensation-related expense adjustments, which were partially offset by expense reengineering initiatives.

    Net inflows in the quarter were $3.3 billion, an $8.0 billion improvement from the year ago quarter. This marks the third consecutive quarter of improved flows. Excluding former parent flows, net inflows were $4.2 billion. Global retail inflows were $5.1 billion, reflecting substantial improvement in North America and EMEA, as well as $5.7 billion of reinvested dividends. Global institutional outflows were $0.9 billion, down from $3.1 billion a year ago.

    Annuities pretax adjusted operating earnings were $120 million, up 1 percent from the prior year.

    Variable annuity pretax adjusted operating earnings decreased $2 million to $113 million reflecting lower interest rates and outflows that more than offset equity market appreciation. Variable annuity sales improved 9 percent year-over-year to $1.1 billion in the quarter.

    Fixed annuity pretax adjusted operating earnings were $7 million, reflecting continued spread compression and lower account balances. Account balances declined 5 percent from limited new product sales and continued lapses.

    Protection pretax adjusted operating earnings were $65 million compared to $67 million a year ago. Overall claims were within expected ranges. VUL/UL cash sales were $69 million, down 8 percent, primarily due to lower indexed universal life sales.
