Ameriprise Financial Launches Risk-Managed Portfolio Series to Address Client Investment Goals.

Advice-embedded portfolios beneficial to building advisor/client relationship

MINNEAPOLIS -- Ameriprise Financial, Inc., (NYSE:AMP) today launched a new series of managed account portfolios called Active Portfolios(SM). Offered through its subsidiary, Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc., Active Portfolios are portfolios of mutual funds managed on a discretionary basis by professional money managers. Active Portfolios offer such features as institutional-quality asset allocation strategies and dynamic reallocation of portfolio holdings for an annual asset-based fee. These elements help Active Portfolios address clients' accumulation and income investment goals while seeking to manage risk and limit portfolio volatility.

Active Portfolios provide Ameriprise financial advisors with a turnkey investment solution that allows them to spend more time working with clients on their unique Dream > Plan > Track(SM) approach to financial planning.

The two portfolio series now available are the Active Accumulation Portfolios(SM) and the Active Income Portfolios(SM). The portfolios are actively managed and monitored through a disciplined, quantitative investment process that seeks to provide risk-managed growth in the Active Accumulation Portfolios and inflation-adjusted income in the Active Income Portfolios. Once selected portfolio holdings are reallocated on a monthly basis in an effort to take advantage of market changes.

"We built Active Portfolios to provide another solution to help clients meet their long-term goals," said Joe Sweeney, president, financial planning, products, services, Ameriprise Financial. "Clients have the opportunity to leverage a product that has been developed to use sophisticated computer modeling that is driven by performance and quantitative analysis and not emotion for investment decisions."

Active Portfolios are offered through the Ameriprise(SM) Premier Portfolio Services investment advisory program and the first two series will be managed by RiverSource Investments, LLC. Additional series of portfolios will be added in 2008.
