Financial asset management companies made strong strides towards recovery during a strong second quarter 2010 but are now returning to battle market volatility. During the second quarter, top asset management companies generally saw an increase in year over year revenues. The recent flurry of pessimism has significantly affected the likelihood of positive short growth.

Poor short-term growth for asset management companies could also stunt long-term progress as well in a few ways. The lack of short-term growth often narrows profit margins. With profit margins narrowed, asset managers tend to focus attention on managing short-term losses and improving efficiency. Capital investments to stimulate long-term growth are in turn lowered.

The general trend in the industry appears to be the adoption of a wait and see approach with regards to the global economic recovery. In addition to global recovery, asset managers are still waiting to fully see the ramifications of recently passed financial reform legislation. 

During this quarter's earnings season, Janus Capital Group Inc. reported profits per share of $0.17 and revenue of $249.3 million. Federated Investors Inc., on the other hand, posted profits of $0.46 per share which was down from last year's figure. The company also saw revenue declining by 25%. www.rothmanresearch.com provides technical analysis and free downloadable research reports on Janus Capital Group Inc. and Federated Investors Inc. by signing up now at
