Standard & Poor's Ratings Services on April 26 loweredits long-term issuer credit rating on Waddell & Reed Financial Inc. to BBB from BBB+ andaffirmed the A-2 short-term issuer credit rating.

The outlook is negative.

While the company's investmentperformance has been adequate over the longer term, its short-term performancehas suffered, the rating agency said.

The negative outlook reflects the rating agency'sexpectation that outflows may continue in the next 18 to 24 months.
