In October 2018, OppenheimerFunds and Invesco, a premier investment management firm, announced that they will be joining forces. The closing of the Invesco-OppenheimerFunds transaction (the “Transfer Date”) is anticipated in mid-2019, subject to regulatory and shareholder approvals and other customary closing conditions. Should the requisite approval be obtained allowing the Invesco-OppenheimerFunds transaction to close, the OppenheimerFunds retirement programs will transition to the Invesco platform, and the provider of your clients’ retirement accounts will change.

To facilitate the transition, impacted retirement shareholders and plan sponsor clients will be informed of the changes which will be effective upon the Transfer Date. Clients are encouraged to carefully review the updated documents they receive and to keep them with their records. These updated documents will replace their existing OppenheimerFunds documents, and will govern their retirement plan or account effective upon the Transfer Date.

The OppenheimerFunds annual account maintenance fee(s) for 2019 were deducted from clients’ accounts in January 2019. They will not be assessed another annual maintenance fee by Invesco until January 2020.
