NEW YORK, Jan. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- AllianceBernstein L.P. ("AB") and AllianceBernstein Holding L.P. ("AB Holding") (NYSE:AB) today announced that preliminary assets under management decreased to $516 billion during December 2018 from $533 billion at the end of November. The 3.2% decline was predominantly due to market depreciation, though total firmwide net outflows contributed as well. By channel, net outflows from Retail and Private Wealth were partially offset by net inflows to Institutions.
