Adjusted Operating

35.6%

  • Second quarter adjusted operating earnings per diluted share was $2.64 and was negatively impacted by $1.14 per diluted share from the reversal of a tax benefit in the first quarter and $0.76 per diluted share from the Federal Reserve rate cuts in March. Excluding these items, EPS growth would have been in the low teens reflecting strong underlying business performance in a difficult environment.
  • In the quarter, GAAP net income was negatively impacted by changes in the company’s credit spread and the valuation of derivatives used to hedge the company’s variable annuity living benefit guarantees(2). Year-to-date, GAAP net income per diluted share was $11.77.
  • The company generated strong organic growth in the quarter with nearly $5 billion in wrap net inflows in Wealth Management and more than $2 billion of net inflows in Asset Management.
  • Adjusted operating net revenue was $2.8 billion, a 6 percent(3) decline. In the quarter, strong organic growth was negated by lower interest rates and 3 percent lower average equity markets.
  • Pretax adjusted operating margin remained strong at 21 percent, as lower revenue was partially offset by well managed expenses. General and administrative expenses declined by 2 percent while still investing for business growth.
  • Excess capital was $1.9 billion and free cash flow generation was approximately 100 percent of adjusted operating earnings year-to-date, demonstrating the company’s continued strong balance sheet fundamentals. The company returned $382 million to shareholders in the quarter, with 1.7 million shares repurchased.
  • The company continued to benefit from its strong technology infrastructure with approximately 95 percent of employees continuing to work from home during the pandemic. During this period, the company has maintained strong engagement with clients, advisors and sales teams and delivered an excellent service experience.

Perspective from Jim Cracchiolo,
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

“Ameriprise delivered another good quarter with strong underlying business results in the face of substantial headwinds from low interest rates and a difficult operating environment due to the pandemic. The powerful combination of our client experience, diversified business and financial strength continues to differentiate Ameriprise.

“In Wealth Management, investors are increasingly seeking tailored financial advice, excellent service and a seamless online experience, which is leading to strong client flows. And in Asset Management, trends continued to improve nicely, driven by our results in the U.S. We delivered positive net flows in the quarter that reflect our active management expertise and deep understanding of the needs of our distribution partners.

“Our business generates strong free cash flow through market cycles that we reinvest in the business and return to shareholders. In addition to our dividend increase earlier this year, we restarted our share repurchases during the quarter. Our financial strength and liquidity position us well to navigate ongoing volatility and economic uncertainty.”

Advice & Wealth Management delivered pretax adjusted operating earnings of $271 million in a difficult operating environment. This included an unfavorable impact of $122 million from the decline in the Federal Funds effective rate, lower transactional activity related to the pandemic and lower average equity markets. These impacts were partially offset by strong wrap net inflows and continued expense management. Pretax adjusted operating margin remained strong in this environment at 18 percent.

Adjusted operating net revenues decreased 7 percent to $1.5 billion, absorbing the expected $122 million of lower revenue from the precipitous decline in short term interest rates, as well as $37 million from lower transactional activity associated with the pandemic and $27 million from lower average equity markets. Results in the quarter benefited from 9 percent growth in wrap assets. The impact to revenue from growth in wrap assets was reduced by our methodology of billing based on beginning of month asset levels. As a result, equity market appreciation in the second quarter will benefit third quarter revenues.

Total expenses were down 1 percent year-over-year. General and administrative expense increased 1 percent, and excluding bank related expenses, decreased 1 percent. General and administrative expenses were in line with expectations as planned investments for future growth were offset by reengineering.

Total client assets grew 4 percent to $630 billion. Organic growth remained very strong with wrap flows of $4.9 billion in the quarter. Brokerage cash balances were $31.1 billion, up 28 percent year-over-year and down 5 percent sequentially as clients began to put money back to work following market volatility in March.

Adjusted operating net revenue per advisor on a trailing 12-month basis increased 5 percent to $669,000. Total advisors were 9,894, with strong advisor retention and experienced advisor recruiting. During the quarter, 75 advisors moved their practices to Ameriprise, a particularly strong result in the current virtual recruiting environment.

Asset Management pretax adjusted operating earnings were $141 million reflecting strong net inflows in the quarter and well managed expenses that were offset by a decline in average equity markets, $11 million of lower performance fees than a year ago and the impact of outflows from prior quarters. Second quarter net pretax adjusted operating margin was 34.5 percent.

Adjusted operating revenues decreased 6 percent versus last year as strong positive net inflows of $2.6 billion in the second quarter partially mitigated the impact of lower average equity markets, lower performance fees and the impact of net outflows from prior quarters.

Adjusted operating expenses improved 4 percent. General and administrative expenses declined 2 percent, reflecting disciplined expense management with reengineering initiatives funding targeted investments for growth.

In the quarter, net inflows were $2.6 billion, a $4.5 billion improvement from the prior year quarter. Retail net inflows excluding former parent flows were $2.7 billion, with $3.1 billion of net inflows in U.S. retail and $0.4 billion of net outflows in EMEA. In addition to these retail inflows, the company continues to build out its model delivery business and had $0.3 billion of AUA flows in the quarter. Global institutional net inflows excluding former parent flows improved and included $0.9 billion of outflows in low-fee assets from an insurance client. There has been significant year-over-year progress for institutional distribution reflecting continued strength in client sales, as well as lower redemptions.

Annuities pretax adjusted operating earnings were $155 million, up $26 million from the prior year.

Variable annuity pretax adjusted operating earnings increased $32 million to $151 million primarily as a result of lower surrenders and withdrawals that reduced the amortization of deferred acquisition costs, as well as lower sales and higher ending market levels. On a year-to-date basis, variable annuity pretax adjusted operating earnings were in line with expectations at $244 million.

Variable annuity sales declined 17 percent year-over-year to $0.9 billion from pandemic concerns and market volatility. More than half of variable sales in the quarter did not have living benefit guarantees, primarily driven by the recently launched, lower-risk structured variable annuity. This trend is expected to continue and meaningfully shift the mix of the business away from products with living benefit guarantees over time.

Fixed annuity pretax adjusted operating earnings were $4 million, down from $10 million a year ago, primarily reflecting continued low interest rates and continued net outflows. In the quarter, the company discontinued new sales of proprietary fixed annuities and fixed indexed annuities, reflecting the current low interest rate environment. Account balances declined 4 percent from continued lapses and discontinuing new product sales.

Protection pretax adjusted operating earnings were $70 million, up $5 million from a year ago. Overall claims were favorable. VUL/UL cash sales declined primarily reflecting a slowdown in indexed universal life product sales given pandemic concerns, market volatility and lower interest rates while VUL sales remained at consistent levels.

Corporate & Other pretax adjusted operating loss(1) was $77 million, down $2 million from the prior year.

Long Term Care pretax adjusted operating earnings were $17 million, primarily reflecting impacts from COVID-19, with fewer clients entering nursing homes as well as increased mortality-related terminations from clients on claim.

Taxes

The second quarter adjusted operating effective tax rate was 42.3 percent, reflecting a reversal of the NOL tax benefit realized in the first quarter. On a year-to-date basis, the adjusted operating effective tax rate was 16.4 percent.

The movement in the operating effective tax rate was a result of strong equity market appreciation in the second quarter, which was a reversal of the equity market dislocation experienced in March. As management indicated in the first quarter, the tax benefit will be adjusted quarterly for the balance of the year based upon changes in markets and our forecast and will be finalized on December 31, 2020.
