"One danger of doing more acquisitions is you might potentially confuse your clients with your marketing message, and we really want to simplify our business," Mansueto reportedly said yesterday morning at the Morningstar annual meeting at the company's Chicago headquarters. "We've got a pretty complete roster of capabilities ... I want to spend more time on better integrating what we have and really driving excellence throughout the firm."

Mansueto reportedly also confirmed plans to continue expanding overseas, specifically in Brazil, Dubai, Hungary and Poland.
