Revenue

Total revenue for the first quarter of 2014 was $72.8 million, a decrease of $597,000 from $73.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2013. The decrease was primarily attributable to:

  • Lower portfolio consulting and other revenue which decreased $416,000, primarily due to lower average assets under advisement from model-based strategies; and
  • A decline in open-end mutual fund revenue of $201,000, as the increase in average assets under management was more than offset by two fewer days in the first quarter of 2014.

Expenses

Expenses for the first quarter of 2014 were $45.2 million, an increase of $1.2 million from $44.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2013. The increase was primarily due to the following:

  • An increase in employee compensation and benefits of $1.7 million, primarily due to higher incentive compensation and higher amortization of restricted stock units; and
  • Lower general and administrative expenses which decreased $325,000, primarily due to lower marketing and IT related expenses.

Operating Margin

The company's operating margin decreased to 37.9% for the first quarter of 2014 compared with 40.0% for the three months ended December 31, 2013. The 209 bps decrease was primarily due to an increase in the compensation to revenue ratio, partially offset by a decrease in the G&A to revenue ratio.

Non-operating Income

Non-operating income, excluding net income attributable to redeemable noncontrolling interest, increased to $3.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014 compared with $2.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013, primarily due to higher earnings from the company's seed investments.
