Invesco Ltd. is in talks with State Street about a merger with State Street Global Advisors, the Boston-based bank’s asset management business, according to a source quoted by Reuters.
The Wall Street Journal broke the news of a possible transaction, which would involve the State Street unit managing $4 trillion in assets, much of which is invested in its SPDR series of exchange-traded funds.
Last week, State Street said it is buying the investor services business of Brown Brothers Harriman for $3.5 billion.
In 2017, Invesco Ltd. agreed to purchase Guggenheim Partners’ ETF business in a $1.2 billion deal. And in 2018, it agreed to pay Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Co. about $5.7 billion to acquire its OppenheimerFunds, which specialized in picking stocks and bonds, particularly in the international arena.
