AllianceBernstein LP is a US-based, global asset management firm providing solution-based diversified investment management services worldwide to institutional, high-net-worth and retail investors.
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 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, 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.
French insurer AXA owns more than half of the company.
