As of March 31, AB was home to 4,161 employees, compared to 3,920 employees as of the corresponding period of 2021.

"Financial markets were volatile in the first quarter, reflecting heightened uncertainty, as investors reset interest rate expectations amid persistent inflation, amplified by geopolitical conflict," Seth Bernstein, AllianceBernstein president and CEO, said in the release. "Against this backdrop, which continues into the second quarter, we experienced net inflows of $11.4 billion, or 6 percent annualized organic growth, led by a large custom target-date mandate and accelerating private wealth inflows."

AllianceBernstein shares have decreased 18 percent since 2022’s start.

The shares (Ticker: AB) ended Friday’s session at $39.81, down 0.50 percent. In after-hours trading, the shares were essentially unchanged.
