  • Adjusted operating earnings per diluted share increased 14 percent to $4.12 and adjusted operating return on equity increased 730 basis points to 37.7 percent. Excluding the impact of unlocking, adjusted operating earnings per diluted share increased 8 percent to $4.24.
  • Ameriprise assets under management and administration were $921 billion, with Advice & Wealth Management total client assets of $612 billion – both represented record highs.
  • Wrap net inflows were $4.1 billion. Wrap assets grew 9 percent to $298 billion and represented 49 percent of total client assets.
  • Nearly 80 percent of Ameriprise adjusted operating net revenues were driven through Advice & Wealth Management.
  • Ameriprise delivered a strong pretax adjusted operating margin of 19.8 percent, driven by a 23.5 percent margin in Advice & Wealth Management and a 38.3 percent net adjusted margin in Asset Management.
  • In the quarter, the company completed its annual unlocking, which resulted in a $20 million pretax operating charge, including $118 million related to a change in interest rate assumptions.
  • Ameriprise’s excess capital was $1.8 billion(2) after returning $676 million to shareholders, which represented approximately 120 percent of adjusted operating earnings excluding unlocking.
  • In the quarter, Auto & Home had $33 million of catastrophe losses, up from $16 million in the prior year. On October 1, Ameriprise closed on the sale of its Auto & Home business to American Family Insurance, with net cash proceeds of $1.035 billion, which added over $0.7 billion to excess capital in the fourth quarter.

 

Perspective from Jim Cracchiolo, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

“Ameriprise delivered an excellent quarter. Advice & Wealth Management is leading our growth with solid contributions from asset management and our insurance businesses.


“Our value proposition continues to distinguish Ameriprise. Client activity was strong with good growth in assets and net inflows into investment advisory.


“Our capital strength is a clear differentiator. We remain focused on generating significant free cash flow that we invest for growth and return to shareholders at attractive levels. In the quarter, we returned nearly 120 percent of our adjusted operating earnings to shareholders.


“And with the successful completion of the sale of Ameriprise Auto and Home, we further strengthened our capital flexibility as we execute our plans.”

(1) Unlocking impacts reflect the company’s annual review of insurance and annuity valuation assumptions and model changes, and the Long Term Care (LTC) gross premium valuation.
(2) Does not include increase in excess capital from the sale of Auto & Home on October 1, 2019.

Asset Management pretax adjusted operating earnings were $173 million, down $24 million from the prior year period, reflecting the cumulative impact of net outflows and only 1 percent year-over-year equity market appreciation. Third quarter net pretax adjusted operating margin was 38.3 percent.

Adjusted operating revenues declined 4 percent driven by the cumulative impact of net outflows, unfavorable foreign exchange translation and limited 1 percent equity market appreciation. Adjusted operating expenses declined 1 percent reflecting lower distribution expenses and well-managed general and administrative expenses.

Net outflows in the quarter were $1.3 billion, a $6.0 billion improvement from the year ago quarter. Excluding former parent flows, net flows were break even. Global retail outflows were $1.3 billion, reflecting substantial improvement in North America with outflows of only $0.4 billion and ongoing negative investor sentiment in EMEA related to geopolitical uncertainties. Global institutional inflows were $1.3 billion and included a $1.8 billion mandate from a large U.K. wealth management client.

Annuities pretax adjusted operating earnings excluding unlocking were $119 million, down 8 percent. Annuities unlocking was a favorable $1 million as the net benefits from equity market and policyholder behavior assumptions offset the impact from changes in interest rate assumptions.

Variable annuity pretax adjusted operating earnings excluding unlocking were down 8 percent to $108 million reflecting lower interest rates and outflows. Variable annuity sales improved 2 percent year-over-year to $1.1 billion.

Fixed annuity pretax adjusted operating earnings excluding unlocking were $11 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 excluding unlocking increased to $70 million compared to $65 million a year ago. Protection unlocking was an unfavorable $13 million, primarily due to lower interest rates. Overall claims were within expected ranges. VUL/UL cash sales were $71 million, down 7 percent, primarily due to lower indexed universal life sales.

Corporate & Other pretax adjusted operating loss excluding Long Term Care and Auto & Home was $73 million, including a gain on the sale of real estate and a low income housing impairment.

Long Term Care pretax adjusted operating earnings excluding loss recognition was essentially flat in the quarter. Strong benefits from higher premium rate increases and benefit reduction offerings more than offset changes in morbidity; this net favorable impact was more than offset by interest rate changes, resulting in a total unlocking/loss recognition of an unfavorable $8 million.

Auto & Home pretax adjusted operating loss was $10 million in the quarter. Catastrophe losses were $33 million, which were $17 million higher than the prior year.

Taxes
The adjusted operating effective tax rate in the quarter was 15.4 percent. The full year adjusted operating effective tax rate is estimated to be in the 16 percent range.

After-tax is calculated using the statutory tax rate of 21%.
(2) After-tax is calculated using the statutory tax rate of 21%.
