“2015 was an uneven performance year for Boston Private,” said Clayton G. Deutsch, CEO. “The Private Bank continued to build franchise value and expand its client base across its footprint. However, our Wealth Management businesses came under pressure from sector-based headwinds and client withdrawals. Nevertheless, all of our wealth management businesses took steps to strengthen their positions. Despite near-term challenges, we enter 2016 confident that we have the right team and client offering in place to execute on our goal of being the premier Wealth Management and Private Banking company in our select markets nationally.”

For the full year 2015, Core Fees and Income increased 13% to $157.1 million, largely due to the acquisition of Banyan Partners, which was completed on October 2, 2014.
AUM increased to $27.6 billion in the fourth quarter, up 1% from $27.4 billion in the third quarter of 2015, reflecting positive market action offset by negative net flows.
