  Weak international markets will hurt AMG's revenue.

55% of AMG's AUM are in international assets. A rally in the US dollar and improvements in GDP likely will bring foreign investments back to the domestic market.

  Equity tilt makes AMG vulnerable to falling stock prices.

AMG borrows money to buy asset managers that invest in equities. When equity market fall, AMG's revenue declines with the lower assets under management. Yet, the company still pays interest on its borrow debt.

  Growth depended on acquisitions.

Part of AMG's growth strategy is buying small to mid-sized asset managers. AMG must find asset managers and the current owners must accept to be purchased. If AMG can't find acquisitions or pays too much, it will hurt the company's growth.
