Standard Life Investments 3rd party AUM break through 50% milestone

Standard Life Investments 3rd party AUM break through 50% milestone 
MONTREAL, March 14, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Standard Life Investments, the global 
fund manager, today announced that its third party assets under management 
(AUM) now account for over 50% of its total assets under management. Standard 
Life Investments was launched in November 1998 with total AUM of £62.7bn 
(USD104.5bn, CAD161.5bn, AUD163.7bn, HKD813.2bn) of which £5.9bn (USD9.8bn, 
CAD15.2bn, AUD15.4bn, HKD76.5bn), 9.4%, was third party money. 
Keith Skeoch, CEO, Standard Life Investments said: 
"To have achieved this milestone in such a relatively short length of time 
shows the ongoing trust that clients have placed in Standard Life Investments' 
ability to provide investment solutions, strong performance, and high levels 
of client service. 
"This milestone reflects the sustainable global growth of Standard Life 
Investments' investment proposition. It comes on the back of a very strong set 
of results in 2012 which showed that 62% of net flows came from outside the 
UK, including £1.8bn (€2.2bn, USD2.9bn, CAD2.9bn, AUD2.8bn, HKD22.7bn) from 
the US. 
"Clients are increasingly recognising the benefits of managers who take a long 
term approach to investing and provide investment solutions designed to meet 
their requirements. I am confident that Standard Life Investments will 
continue its global growth and am committed to providing clients with a range 
of innovative investment solutions designed to meet their investment goals." 
Highlights of Standard Life Investments' performance in 2012 include: 


    --  Earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) up 15% to a record
        £145m (€178.8m, USD235.7m, CAD234.7m, AUD227.0m,
        HKD1826.9m) (2011: £126m, €150.8m, USD195.8m, CAD199.4m,
        AUD191.0m, HKD1520.8m)
    --  Worldwide third party sales up 42% to £6.1bn (€7.5bn,
        USD9.9bn, CAD9.9bn, AUD9.6bn, HKD76.9bn (2011: £4.3bn,
        €5.1bn, USD6.7bn, CAD6.8bn, AUD6.5bn, HKD51.9bn)
    --  Retention rates were some of the highest in the industry at
        just 14%* of opening AUM

        like: John Hancock (US), HDFC Asset Management (India),
        Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank (Japan) and Standard Life
    --  Third party AUM up 16% to a record £83.0bn (€102.3bn,
        USD134.9bn, CAD134.3bn, AUD130.0bn, HKD1045.7bn) (2011:

        HKD1869.7bn)
    --  Strong investment performance with 91% of funds over one year
        and 81% over three year time periods outperforming their
        benchmark
    --  Strong product development pipeline

* excluding the outflow of £1.8bn (€2.2bn, USD2.9bn, CAD2.9bn, AUD2.8bn, 
HKD22.7bn) relating to the loss of a single low yield mandate following a 
client's change of pension scheme strategy

Commenting on Standard Life Investments' 2012 results Keith Skeoch said:

"Standard Life Investments produced very strong results in 2012, delivering 
record EBIT, record profit, record year end third party aum and record total 
aum. This achievement demonstrates client confidence in our focus on change 
philosophy, that drives our investment process, and the team based approach 
adopted by Standard Life Investments.

"While 2013 will continue to be challenging with global economies facing many 
uncertainties, I firmly believe that Standard Life Investments has the 
performance, products and people to enable our clients to prosper."
