UBS initiates coverage on Ameriprise Financial (NYSE: AMP) with a Buy. PT $60.00.

Analyst, Suneet Kamath, said, "We rate AMP Buy given its improving business mix favoring low capital-intensive segments (i.e., Advice & Wealth Management and Asset Management). These segments offer stronger free cash flow generation and tend to be more transparent than traditional insurance business. As such, both segments have traditionally been awarded higher multiples by investors. We believe AMP is poised for multiple expansion as it continues to increase its earnings contribution from these segments."
