Invesco has successfully completed our acquisition of OppenheimerFunds. This strategic transaction brings Invesco’s total assets under management (AUM) to $1.2 trillion, making us the 6th-largest US retail investment manager and the 13th-largest global investment manager1. And, it further enhances our ability to meet client needs through our comprehensive range of high-conviction active, passive and alternative capabilities.
The strengths of the combined firm
The highly complementary investment and distribution capabilities of Invesco and OppenheimerFunds strengthen our ability to provide more relevant investment outcomes to an expanded number of institutional and retail clients in the US and around the globe. The transaction combines OppenheimerFunds’ high-performing investment capabilities (including a strong international and emerging markets equity franchise, and a powerful US third-party distribution platform) with Invesco’s strong and diversified product lineup and global presence, supported by solutions-driven and technology-enabled client outreach.
“We’re pleased that our clients can now benefit from the addition of the OppenheimerFunds products to Invesco’s diversified lineup of active, passive and alternative capabilities,” said Martin L. Flanagan, president and CEO of Invesco. “Clients face increasingly complex issues and are looking to work with fewer providers that can offer a comprehensive array of products and services. As the asset management industry sees further consolidation, we believe that firms with a wide range of capabilities, optimal value-added services and meaningful scale will be best positioned to meet client needs and succeed over the long term. We will leverage the combined firm’s highly talented team of professionals, expanded set of capabilities and deep global presence to continue providing tailored solutions that help our clients around the world achieve their investment objectives.”
There’s something remarkable that happens when just the right elements come together —people with ideas, data with inspiration, investors with solutions.
That’s what we do every day at Invesco.
Let’s invest in greater possibilities together.
