Cohen & Steers CNS reported preliminary assets under management (AUM) of $66.3 billion as of June 30, 2020, which increased 3.9% from the prior-month level. Market appreciation of $910 million and net inflows of $2.2 billion were partially offset by distributions of $642 million.
The company recorded total institutional accounts of $28.9 billion at the end of June, up 3.2% on a sequential basis. Of the total institutional accounts, advisory accounts were $15.3 billion, while the rest were sub-advisory.
Cohen & Steers recorded $28.9 billion in open-end funds, up 6.1% from a month ago. Also, close-end funds were $8.5 billion, which grew marginally from May 2020.
Cohen & Steers’ widespread product offerings, global reach and investment strategies continue to attract investors, in turn, supporting revenue growth. However, mounting expenses will likely impede bottom-line growth to some extent.
Shares of the company have rallied 1.3% so far this year against a 4.1% decline recorded by the industry it belongs to.
