AllianceBernstein Announces September 30, 2010 Assets Under Management

Third Quarter 2010 Earnings Conference Call to be Held on October 29, 2010 at 8:30 A.M. (EDT)

Oct 12, 2010, 16:02 ET from AllianceBernstein L.P.

NEW YORK, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AllianceBernstein L.P. and AllianceBernstein Holding L.P. (NYSE: AB) today announced that preliminary assets under management increased to $484 billion from $467 billion during September 2010.  The 3.7% increase was due to positive equity investment returns, partially offset by net asset outflows mainly from institutional accounts.  Two accounts - a non-actively managed account, which generates substantially lower fees than other such accounts, and a U.S. Large Cap Growth account - comprised half of the institutional outflows.
