AllianceBernstein’s investment services encompass value and growth equities, blend strategies, fixed income, alternatives and asset allocation. It also provides independent investment research, trading and brokerage-related services to Institutional clients through Sanford C. Bernstein & Co. LLC and its London-based affiliate.

AllianceBernstein is based in New York, U.S.A. It has approximately US$477 billion in assets under management as of July 31, 2014.


AllianceBernstein traces its origins back more than 45 years. Sanford C. Bernstein was founded in 1967 as an investment-management firm for private clients. Alliance Capital was founded in 1971 when the investment-management department of Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette, Inc., merged with the investment-advisory business of Moody's Investor Services, Inc.

In October 2000, Alliance Capital acquired Sanford C. Bernstein. Alliance Capital's expertise in growth equity and corporate fixed-income investing[citation needed], and its family of retail mutual funds, complemented Bernstein's expertise in value equity and tax-exempt fixed-income management, and its private-client business.[citation needed]

On January 20, 2015, the firm announced changes to its brand identity and messaging to better reflect the evolution of the firm. This new brand initiative, Ahead of Tomorrow, captures both the company's progress and its unique approach to innovating and delivering for clients. The new brand name, "AB," and logo better embody the firm's distinct offerings and unified culture.[1]

Company owners[edit]

French insurer AXA owns more than half of the company.
